End of term treat

On Wednesday the Bibliomaniacs embarked on a journey to view a private collection of largely nineteenth and twentieth century literature. We inspected the books and were given background information from the collector on Russian literature and its integration with English literature. We had a fabulous lunch composed of posh smoked salmon sandwiches and a feast of fruit and sweet things the collector had prepared for us. In the afternoon we visited the Cottage Bookshop in Penn. We split into five groups and had a competition to see who could make the most profit should the books be sold by us.
