    Publié depuis le 07 déc. 2009

    En francais, anglais, allemand et italien. "Ce dictionnaire, contrairement à l'usage courant, contient le minimum de termes possible. J'ai limité les termes utilisés par les libraires d'anciens à ceux qui ne se trouvent pas dans les dictionanaires usuels, pour deux, trois ou plusieurs langues".

    Le dictionnaire par Edgar France est publié par LILA en 1994.

    John Carter, ABC for Book Collectors
    Publié depuis le 07 déc. 2009

    "Like all good reference books, the ABC for Book Collectors conveys much in a little, sets limits to its subject and keeps within them, and - saving grace - treats that subject with individuality as well as authority, in a style at once concise, forthright and witty. It is, in short, a masterpiece, whose merits are acknowledged by the fact that it has never, in forty years, been out of print." (Nicolas Barker in his introduction to the revised edition of the "ABC for Book Collectors", Oak Knoll Press 1995).

  • [+] En savoir plus Bernard M. Rosenthal, Dictionary of Abbreviations 


    Publié depuis le 01 déc. 2009

    “German and Italian antiquarian booksellers and auctioneers are very fond of using abbreviations in their catalogs, sometimes on a rather lavish scale. This enables them to convey a large amount of information in a relatively short space, but readers not completely fluent in those languages are likely to be left somewhat bewildered, even discouraged, by strings of vowels and consonants occurring either singly or in unfamiliar combinations in the midst of what would otherwise be a fairly comprehensible text. For them, this little dictionary, the first one of its kind, I think, may come in handy. Each abbreviation is followed by the full resolution of the German and Italian word and by its English translation, in most cases with one or more examples illustrating the context and the combinations in which the abbreviation is most likely to occur.”
