Florence poses filling a rare book order for a foreign customer in her shop. My favorite Florence story involving foreign sales: Florence had bought a fine Gold Coast collection of unusual and expensive books. On the same day she sold separate books on falconry to an Arab prince and a Japanese dealer with a Samurai customer.
