From these posts it might seem that we only acquire “old” things–so here is an antidote to that assumption.  Below is the bookseller’s description, which gives a nice precis of the scope of the magazine:

Feminist Bookstore News.  47 issues from 1987 to 1999.  Published in San Francisco by Carol Seajay from 1983 to 2000, FBN is an unparalleled primary source for hard-to-find information about feminist publishing and bookselling of the day.  It is packed with feature articles, news notes, book reviews, surveys of the field, business strategies, profiles of publishers and shops, ads, and more.  The ups and downs, causes and concerns, of the feminist book community come across with great immediacy.  Although the focus is on the U.S., there is a great deal of international coverage, including Third World feminism.  Some issues focus on themes, such as Black History, Children’s Books, University Press, and Travel.  All kinds of publishers are represented–mainstream trade, scholarly, small press, lesbian, etc.
