AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Stuart Kells is a young (some might say middle-aged, but these things are relative) bibliophile, just hitting his straps as an author. He served his apprenticeship as a book-runner, book collector, dealer, scholar and academic, and has previously written two books : Rare A Life Among Antiquarian Books (Folio 2011), a biography of bookseller Kay Craddock; and Penguin and the Lane Brothers  (Black Inc,., 2015), the history of the famous imprint and its founders, which was the winner of the 2015 Ashurst Business Literature Prize, administered by the State Library of New South Wales. Wit his wife Fiona, he was part of the team which edited Outback Penguin - Richard Lane's Barwell Diaries (Black Inc. & The Lane Press, 2016).' (Introduction)
