Callum James Books Short List #8
The latest Callum James Books Short List Catalogue has just been sent out with an interesting section of material on Venice including an important collection of photographs from the circle of Lord and Lady Layard. If you are not on the mailing list and would like to receive details of this catalogue each time it is issued (about once every two or three months) then please simply send me a note to the email link on the right hand side of this blog page.
I am a bookcollector, bookdealer, publisher and writer living in Portsmouth on the South Coast of the UK.
This blog is my personal space for the recording of my numerous interests including science-fiction, victorian and vintage photography, gay literature, book design, typography, homoerotic artwork, the Amazon river, the books of Frederick Rolfe (Baron Corvo), Forrest Reid, sundry gay Victorian and Edwardian characters, Slash Fiction, Samuel R Delany, Vintage swimwear, Willard Price, Venice, and so on...
Alongside all of that you also get a personal journal of life and memoir and the self-therapy you have come to know and love from bloggers.
