Morningside Books minus Bob Younger

Bob Younger has died. Morningside Bookshop seems poised to continue operations, looking at this staff roster.

His outfit has done Civil War readers a terrific service over the years and I myself have a few indispensable books reprinted by the shop. My hunch is that Mary Younger has been the practical half of this partnership. May she prosper.

The last fifty years of Civil War publishing have been, by and large, dreadful. Bob Younger, however, was there for us with important new work and essential reprints.

Interesting obit here by Eric Wittenberg. More here. My earlier posting about Morningside.
