The Book Elves have been enjoying a few days of Summer-like weather here
in Gnu-England, which is very appropriate since they are finishing the
Summer Catalog, which goes to the printer tomorrow and will be mailed the
28th.  Be sure to email us your mailing address if you are not already on
our mailing list and want a free copy.

But if there's one thing that can distract the Book Elves from their
cataloging work (other, of course, than the cute Elfettes three caves
down, or the return of Nomar Garciaparra to the Red Sox lineup) it's a
Good Story, and they found a Good Story in the Diamond Necklace Affair.

If you saw Tuesday's Newsletter or visited our Just Catalogued page
<http://www.joslinhall.com/justcat.htm> you saw that we have several
interesting pieces regarding the infamous "Affair of the Diamond
Necklace", the scandal that helped bring about Marie Antoinette's downfall
and the French Revolution.  The Book Elves have been busy writing up an
account of this affair and putting together a page devoted to it, complete
with pictures of many of the leading characters-

Alas, there is no picture of Hilary Swank as the Countess de la Motte, but
the Book Elves do report that they enjoyed the movie very much.



Don't forget that we still have a few copies of our current printed
catalog- "(Almost) Ready for Spring" available.  If you would like a free
copy, please send us your mailing address.



Our Summer catalog is going to press later this week and will be mailed
before July 4th -email us your mailing address to be sure you don't miss
your free copy!


That's all for today.  Have a look at "The Affair of the Diamond Necklace
when you have a moment, and have fun!
