Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I only just now learned that Michael has passed. He was a very good antiquarian bookseller who had rendered years of valuable service to the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of Canada and who has been instrumental in the production of the Toronto Antiquarian Book Fair. He was always nice to me and we did a little business from time to time. It is only perhaps three weeks since he phoned me from Arizona about some Leonard Cohen material he was contemplating buying. I send my sincere condolences to his family, kin, and friends. - Posted by: Steven Temple (colleague) on: May 24, 2017
