Peter Howard, R. I. P.

Peter Howard, owner of Serendipity Books, dies | Berkeleyside: "Peter Howard, the eccentric and brilliant owner of Serendipity Books, and a towering figure in the world of rare books, died at home on March 31.

A Giants season ticket-holder for more than 40 years, Howard died with the opening game of the season blaring on television – while the Giants were still beating the Dodgers."

Hat tip to Art Scott.
