The faculty, namely Sarah Baldwin, George Krzyminski, Brian Cassidy, Sunday Steinkirchner, Janine Moody and Susan Benne, gave an overview of the do's and don'ts of the rare book trade and the benefits of being a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America. The second ABAA webinar will take place in late summer. Those who are interested in participating please contact the ABAA or watch the listservs for sign-up information.

Feel good – and learn something. The “Seminar für Antiquare” or workshop for antiquarian booksellers was founded in Munich 40 years ago. Since then it is held every spring with lectures by scholars and colleagues about book history and the trade, excursions to libraries and museums, practical courses in book restoration or the care of prints and photographs, and discussion groups related to legal, economic or technical questions of our everyday business. Legendary are the evening dinners.
