Wonder if anyone remembers Henry Black, the bookseller on Main around Kenilworth? He passed away about 5 weeks ago. Mr. Black had the books piled up to the ceiling in a system that only he understood. His was no fancy store in a nice area. He was a fixture in Hamilton, and an eccentric! I was a regular customer, he had some wonderful old text books on Stationary Engineering and other technical subjects. He had a rare, old complete 62 volume correspondence course on Stationary Engineering that I was dying to own. We agreed on a price ($500!) but he wouldn't let me have them, "I'm not quite done with them yet". I heard that many times from Mr. Black, he couldn't let this or that go yet, he just loved the books so much.

I will always remember you Henry Black, you are missed.
