Summary
From his drug-hazy years at the Beat Hotel in Spain, and throughout his career as an antiquarian book dealer, David Mason has led a storied life. He spent two nights on the floor in William Burroughs' hotel room, quivering in an amphetamines-soaked fever. At a Spanish book binding factory he gilded a volume in white morocco for Pope John XXIII. He's owned five antiquarian shops, and exhibited at the most prestigious fairs in the world. Yet whether he's regaling us with stories of cross-country hitchhiking or sharing industry wisdom about auctions, Mason's humour and expertise is everywhere apparent. 2013
