10th AnniversaryIt's Loganberry's Tenth Anniversary!

Ten years ago, November 1994, Loganberry Books made its debut at the Cleveland Antiquarian Book Fair in Gray's Armory, and set up shop on Larchmere Boulevard with Dede Moore Oriental Rugs.  There have been three expansions since then, including the move to our own building last summer, and we seem to be building bookshelves ... again!  The Anniversary postcard will be arriving in the mail soon; or come pick some up and pass them out to your friends.

Exciting new acquisitions

  • Pickle-Chiffon PieAll-Night Party: The Women of Bohemian Greenwich Village and Harlem, 1913-1930  by Andrea Barnet.  They were poets, actresses, singers, artists, journalists, publishers, baronesses, and benefactresses. And they eschewed the social conventions expected of them!  New paperback, $16.95
  • Pickle-Chiffon Pie by Jolly Roger Bradfield. Who gets the princess?? The prince who "brings back the most unusual,  the most marvelous, the MOST WONDERFUL THING" ... and so the race is on!!  Out-of-print for almost 30 years, this new hardcover reprint is available for $18.95. 
  • A Tree for Peter by Kate Seredy.  Originally written in 1941, this story of hope and urban renewal became famous for its detailed sepia-toned illustrations.  The Purple House Press reprint does justice to its artistry with nice cream paper stock and good illustration reproduction.  Recommended.  New hardcover, $19.95
  • and lots of used and rare books in all categories, of course...

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
T217: Tomato soup and chocolate cake
I'm looking for a children's book with a little girl who always eats a chicken leg, tomato soup and a piece of chocolate cake. I think the story is told from the point of view of another little girl whose box lunch isn't nearly so great and then one day she is invited to go to a restaurant to have the tomato soup, chocolate cake lunch, with her father. (I believe).
