Old Books Rare Friends by Leona Rostenberg and Madeleine Stern

                                                          Old Books Rare Friends

This is the story of two friends Leona and Madeleine . The story takes us from their childhood and collage years right through to their travels and work years. The book has a lot of wonderful pictures included and it is clear to see these ladies had quite a life.
It was not obvious from the beginning that they were going to be friends but that is what they became nonetheless and it is just wonderful for us that they did. Their lives have been filled with books ,searching for them ,selling them and loving a mystery about them and their authors.
The ladies traveled a lot and they take us with them on their journeys, it is fun reading about where they visited ,through their eyes esp when on one particular visit to London when they went to stay at a particular establishment they very nearly got more then they bargained for.
If you love a book about books then I urge you to read this . A book about friendship and books is a book to treasure !
