Introduction My new book is out! RARE BOOK HUNTING: ESSAYS AND ESCAPADES (2021). See link above. I am first and foremost a book collector and writer. I have been collecting for 30 years in two areas: association items related to American book hunting and first editions of Latin American literature. At the University of Texas, I received a Masters degree in Library Science, spent three years as an intern / assistant at the Humanities Research Center learning bibliography and books from the best in the field, worked in the book trade for Dorothy Sloan, noted Americana dealer, and ran the rare book and manuscript department at Butterfield and Butterfield auction house in San Francisco. An opportunity in the family real estate business brought me to back to Houston twenty-two years ago. I am a founder and president of the Book Hunters Club of Houston established in 2014. I have become well versed in the history of American book collecting /hunting. Thus the inspiration to share my insights and collection through my blog.
