Collecting tips:

Lamb In His Bosom (1933) is one of the hardest Pulitzer Prize titles to find in jacket. We've had it twice, actually the same copy on two different occasions. In neither case was it hard to sell. When we bought the book the first time, it cost us $32. We would be pleased to buy additional copies at that price (this is what passes for an understatement at BTC). We've never had anyone request any other book by this author, but then, as Cab Calloway said: "One never knows, do one?"
