Dallas: Somesuch Press, 1975. 383pp. One of 500 numbered and signed copies. Illustrated with black & white photographs. A miniaturized edition of the original, full-sized memoir by the former chairman of Neiman-Marcus, who was also a passionate collector and publisher of miniature books. Miniature Books: 4,000 Years of Tiny Treasures, by Anne Bromer and Julian Edison, is dedicated to and contains a preface by Marcus. The miniature version of Minding the Store was commissioned for Marcus's 70th birthday by his wife and was the first book produced by the Somesuch Press. Card of Stanley Marcus laid in. Unlike most miniature books, this resembles its "real" counterpart, a commercially issued book about Neiman-Marcus, with a cloth cover and an author photo on back the of the dust wrapper. Some wear and discoloration of dust jacket and minor soiling to text block edges, else near fine. (Bradbury, p. 280; see Bromer/Edison, p. 7). (3 by 2; 76x50mm).
