It's What's Inside That Matters

Devotees of the store, and the UBC in particular, may already be well acquainted with our Find of the Week, in which B-Mail author Paul selects the things Carl and I fish out of the many books that cross our counters and captures their essence with captivating captions. But almost as fun, intriguing and occasionally unnerving are the little things found written inside the covers. Below are some of my favorites from last week:

Sketches on the inner cover of a novel; perhaps plans for some sort of sinister subterranean Stonehenge?

Har. Har.

Perhaps the best Ex Libris plate I've ever seen? Inside an old Modern Library hardcover.
