  • Stamped with a National Character: Nineteenth Century American Color Plate Books - An Exhibition

    Historical events seldom create neat time periods, but in this case the century fairly defines an era. The first American color plate book, William Birch's The City of Philadelphia...As It Appeared in the Year 1800, was published in parts in 1799-1800. At the end of the century, the mid-1890s saw the dawn of the widespread use of the trichromatic half-tone process, which quickly replaced the various mediums for producing color plate book illustrations that had been in use throughout the preceding century.

  • 100 Years - 100 Books: High Spots of Collectible Children's Books from 1863-1963

    100 Years - 100 Books: High Spots of Collectible Children's Books from 1863-1963

    The world of collectible children's books has come of age. Although children's books have always been collected, it is only within the last ten years that they have blasted into the consciousness of the book collecting world in general and even into the minds of the non collecting public. It now goes without saying that great first edition collections should also include firsts of classic children's literature as well ...

  • The Literature of Collecting by Richard Wendorf

    The Literature of Collecting by Richard Wendorf

    Explorations into the world of books, libraries and the visual arts: Richard Wendorf, Stanford Calderwood Director and Librarian of the Boston Athenæum, provides a groundbreaking investigation of the relationship between the theoretical texts devoted to collecting and the fictional texts that also take collecting as their focus: not just John Fowles's “The Collector”, but also Susan Sontag's “The Volcano Lover”, Evan Connell's “The Connoisseur”, Tibor Fischer's “The Collector Collector”, Bruce Chatwin's “Utz”, and Ian McEwan's early short story "Solid Geometry." Wendorf shows how the critical arguments posed by Benjamin, Baudrillard, Muensterberger and others play out in these modern literary texts and how, in turn, these fictional works complicate the ways in which we think about what it means to be a collector.

  • From Dickens to Hitchcock to the Sex Pistols! - “Written” Highlights at the London International Antiquarian Book Fair 2012

    From Dickens to Hitchcock to the Sex Pistols! - “Written” Highlights at the London International Antiquarian Book Fair 2012

    “We are very pleased about the new location, which will make the 2012 the biggest and best yet; more exhibitors, more books, maps, prints, ephemera & manuscripts in a bigger and better hall providing more space on stands, wider aisles, with ample space to sit and relax in three different cafés. We are delighted that the ABA's partner will be the National Trust, which will be promoting the many important libraries, containing over 2 million books, under its management” (Brian Lake) A hand-written account of Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens and the original illustrations for Roald Dahl’s Danny, Champion of the World are among the ‘written’ wonders that will be on sale at the 55th London International Antiquarian Book Fair. The Fair, which will be held for the first time in the bigger National Hall at Olympia (London W14) from Thursday, 24th May to Saturday, 26th May, 2012 has more exhibitors than ever before, who are travelling from all corners of the globe to take part in the oldest Fair in the UK.

  • Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - Penned in Prison for The Private Library

    Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - Penned in Prison for The Private Library

    Here's an interesting idea for a private library: collect nothing but titles that have been penned by prisoners. If you think such a book collection might contain mostly accounts of prison life, think again ... some of the world's greatest, as well as some of the most influential, literature ever written was penned by prisoners.

  • A day out for the rare book trade - St. Bride

    A day out for the rare book trade - St. Bride

    We’re planning a really festive and utterly splendid day out for the book trade on Thursday 13th December – an afternoon of activity, followed by the legendary ABA Christmas Party (none of this restricted to ABA members).  The venue is to be the St. Bride Foundation in Blackfriars – and what a fine choice it is.  The First Lady and I were there the other day for a preview of what’s in store, at the invitation of the Chief Executive of the Foundation, the very amiable Glyn Farrow.  Most booksellers are in thrall with their work, of course, but how nice to meet someone else so enthusiastic, so energetic and so palpably in love with his.
