Crisp and clean as new! This is a wonderful read if you're a Clevelander and/or a collector of books and ephemera about books. It tells the story of Richard Laukhuff, a German immigrant who ended up in Cleveland where he opened a bookstore in 1916 at 40 Taylor Arcade. Laukhuff died in 1957 and for awhile his wife, Hermione, kept the store going by herself. But even after it closed the legacy of Laukhuff's remained. The book opens with the story of collector, Philip Kaplan's, first visit to the shop and his meeting with the rather formidable Laukhuff.Intimidated though he was, Kaplan was too enamored of the vast number of obscure periodicals to never come back. The last part of the booklet is comprised of selections from the correspondence of Philip Kaplan and Hermione Laukhuff from 1960 to 1982. Booklet measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has 45 pages. Limited print run -- just 450 copies printed.
