    • Arts

This obituary for William (Bill) Dailey was written for our Spring 2018 issue.

Bill was a bookseller and long-time ABAA member(W&V Dailey, later Dailey Rare Books), and his sudden death in December 2017 was a great loss, and cause of great sadness to many.

In a tribute written for the ABAA, John Windle said "Bill had an eye for the unusual, the strange, the weird even, in books, art, and people. He wasn’t much of a shopkeeper but he filled their bookshop... with some of the most-interesting books and artwork I’ve ever seen."

This obituary is written and read by Victoria Dailey, Bill's former wife and business partner.
