Happy 2016! (If it's 2018 when you're reading this, sorry for the lack of updates). The year is off to a busy start. We are starting to price and shelve the big mysticism buy, so if communing with the godhead is your thing, come in and see how your predecessors got the job done. (By the way, we have several hundred books from this collection that are far from trash, but aren't going to make the grade. If anyone wants them for a church library or book sale or any other reason, let me know.)
Recent acquisitions include the above-pictured collection of African lit, including many Heinemann file copies and books published in Africa. Most are priced $2-4. We have also bought 6 boxes of fishing books as well as 50 boxes of art and graphic novels I drove all the way to Philly to get.
Also in the store somewhere: signed, self-published works by the Detroit radical-rocker John Sinclair.
Welcome to the Grey Matter/Troubadour Amalgamation of Books, Hadley's #1 hard-to-find source for hard-to-find books and records. We are located just off the bike path at East St. and non-motorists get a 10% discount year-round. We have a large, constantly churned selection of scholarly, scientific and general stock, nearly all priced below their internet brethren.
Anyone have six large to spare? Bob W. is selling his copy of 'AH, Allen', Claudia Cohen's beautifully produced homage to Allen Ginsberg. This incredible volume has contributions by, and signatures of, every then-living Beat poet, as well as the likes of Yoko Ono, Clemente, Oldenburg, Nan Goldin, Nam June Paik, Joe Strummer and many more.
Hours: M,W,TH, F 10-6; SAT 11-6; SUN 12-5; Tuesday by chance (usually 11-3)
