David A. Randall (1905-1975) had a remarkable career as a book dealer before embarking on a second and equally remarkable career as a rare book librarian. Keller describes those careers in this book and provides a generous sampling of Randall's writing on rare books, book collecting, and bibliography. The author includes a chronological list of his published work, a list of catalogs Randall issued as a rare book dealer, and a list of catalogs of the excellent exhibits he sponsored as head of the Lilly Library at Indiana University. Randall's son Ronald, who has followed in his father's footsteps as a rare book dealer, introduces the book with a warm rememberance of his father, and there is a frontispiece portrait of Randall and an index.
