Book Review: Dedicated to - compiled by W B Gooderham

I heard about this wonderful, quite unique, book on BBC R4 ... learning of gems like this that makes paying the licence fee so worthwhile.
This is a sharing type of book; here Gooderham shares his collection of 2nd hand book annotations from books as gifts. It's a wonderfully eclectic collection, the printing is beautiful, the cover is lovely. A book to remind us of the value of the book as a gift and the importance of the annotated note from giver to receiver. 
Long live second hand books and the hidden treasures of personal inscription, and thank you,Wayne, for finding these.
