A Bookstore is Gone, Long Live the Books! Part 8-The Film Till Now

A local used bookstore recently closed after 25 years. They had a fantastic going-out-of-business sale. While part of me feels “guilty” for taking advantage of their sad circumstances, the rest (and logical) part of me knows that they needed to sell as many books as possible. Through these books, a bit of their entrepreneurial and intellectual spirit will live on. With that idea in mind, I’m doing a limited-run series where I’ll spotlight each of the volumes I “adopted” from this sweet little shop. Shine on, you bookish gems!

Today’s selection? The Film Till Now by Paul Rotha.

The Film Till Now

DETAILS:

  • TITLE: THE FILM TILL NOW
  • AUTHOR: PAUL ROTHA
  • REPRINTED IN 1931/FIRST PUBLISHED 1930
  • PUBLISHED BY: JONATHAN CAPE & HARRISON SMITH

Stylish endpapers

WHY I BOUGHT IT:

The Film Till Now has been on my TBR list for more years than I care to count. My laziness in never actively looking for a copy truly paid off, as this edition dates to just a year after the book was first published. It is in wonderful shape for its age (87 years!).

Thanks for reading! I hope you’re enjoying the series. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
