Frontispiece b&w photograph ('First Hill of Content bookshop'), 16 b&w illustrations, errata slip inserted, and index. Here are the remininiscences of one of Australia's leading booksellers, 'Bert' Spencer. His 'Hill of Content' bookshop still trades on the same site (since 1922), and is affectionately regarded by book-lovers world-wide. Among those who enjoyed Spencer's hospitality and humour were Dame Nellie Melba, John Masefield, Beverley Nichols, Sir Arthur Streeton, David Scott Mitchell and many others - all mentioned in this book.
