[Henry , February 26, 2016.]
Department stores used to have a section called Book. Even more exotic: Stamp and Coin.
My first store-bought (not school Book Fair) books came from a department store. Abraham and Straus? Macy’s? I don’t know. But I still have the books: Great Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe and A Tale of Two Cities (45¢ each).
A reader could even find Shakespearean criticism in a department store: this receipt at least strongly suggests that was the case.
