Vintage Gallery #12 Looking in Junkshops by John Bedford
|spotted in a junk shop - that set the irony alarm off|
Published in 1961, cover illustration by Susan Holland.
"The ideal handbook for all who have gone into junk shops and antique shops, hesitated and dithered and then come out - either empty handed or with 'junk'. John Bedford is himself an life-long collector and amateur whose knowledge is wide-ranging in many fields. But his style is always friendly and down-to-earth. If an article is likely to be 'in the Sotheby class', he will tell you so."
