Profile Information

Introduction
IF ONE TELLS THE TRUTH , ONE IS SURE , SOONER OR LATER , TO BE FOUND OUT .

Mad , bald and dangerous to know . Long term interest in late Victorian period - in particular the 1890s literary scene . Perhaps , considering my demographic , more neo- victorian than Steampunk , but enjoy dressing the part etc. Visits to nearby Ballarat include stays at the gold rush era 'Craigs' , site of a visit by the crew of the Civil War raider ' Shenandoah' c. 1865 .

HEALTH WARNING - THE PROFESSOR IS A SCEPTIC WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR AND ANY CONTRIBUTION HE MAY MAKE TO FORUMS SHOULD BE IGNORED !

Increasing age and infirmity may also be cited to excuse the more extreme aspects of his behavior . The title ' Professor ' was granted ( 1908 ) by Prince Hapnick of Carpania - as recorded in the Blake Edwards documentary ' The Great Race ' 1965.


PATRON SAINT ( BY ACCLAMATION ) OF THE ' LEAGUE OF ECCENTRICITY ' .

Again, thank you for your kindness and support. I often feel like the only one who can pull me out of a slump is myself, and there are always wonderful people shouting encouragement to me, like yourself. >curtsies/p>

I think I've degenerated from bookseller to haunter of used book shops and gifter of books. Somewhere along the way I got tired of recommending things and knowing the listener either couldn't afford to buy a copy or wouldn't be able to track it down. Additionally lending things out gets tiresome and can spoil friendships. So now I just buy up used copies and give them out when I suggest reading material.

This is inferior to actually being a bookseller for 2 reasons. First of all I'm too far out of loop to keep up with my favorite publishing houses. The second is that I miss having a steady stream of people asking for my opinion on books.

Really I think your situation of being a sometimes bookseller/shop watcher/expert in antiquarian books is ideal. If I could survive the holiday season with part time work on top of my full time job I would be asking around at all my favorite bookshops and libraries.

I must thank you. The conversation I had with you and Robert the other day spurned my imagination and finally got me on the right track for identifying my mystery flower. I now know generally that it's a wild form of forget-me-not.
