Friday Links

An interesting look into the final days of Tony Blair as Prime Minister, through the eyes of novelist Martin Amis.

These guys had way too much time on their hands.

This century-old ad for Theodore Dresier's Sister Carrie ran in the Paper Cuts Blog (my new favorite to check in on).

As I did here, I'm playing a little "What if...." game with this ad.

Charles Agvent has a signed copy (1 of 1500) published by the Limited Editions Club in 1939 for only $330.

Serendipidty Books
has a first printing of the second edition advertised above for only $875.

But the true prize would be a "true" first, of which there were reportedly fewer than 600 copies published, in 1900. Heritage Book Shop in L.A. has a copy for a cool $5000.
