Found In Books 4: The Gentlemanly Book Trade

From a gentler age.



There, in the Broad, within whose booky house
Half England’s scholars nibble books or browse,
Where’er they wander blessed fortune theirs;
Books to the ceiling, other books upstairs;
Books, doubtless, in the cellar, and behind
Romantic bays, where iron ladders wind.


John Masefield
