When Dan Whitmore, of Whitmore Rare Books, in Altadena, California, was in law school in Philadelphia a few years ago, he discovered a first edition of For Whom The Bell Tolls in a local bookstore, and he was hooked. He credits Kevin Johnson, of Royal Books in Baltimore, with helping him get started in book collecting and then giving him sage advice as he became a rare book dealer.
Nate Pedersen of Fine Books and Collections interviewed Dan for the magazine's Bright Young Things feature a couple of years ago. We hope you'll check it out and learn more about Dan.
We look forward to seeing Dan and his wife Darinka when they return for their second year at the book fair in March.
