  • Art and the World's First Novel

    Art and the World's First Novel

    What is generally acknowledged as the world's first novel was written by a Japanese woman a thousand years ago.  The Tale of Genji, by Murakasi Shikibu (known as Lady Murakasi in the West), is regarded to be an accurate description of life in the imperial court in the Heian era (794 - 1185 CE).  The daughter of a scholar and an officer of the court, she was given a male's education.  Being a lady-in-waiting herself, she was privy to life at court.

  • Don't Wipe Your Nose With This Map

    Don't Wipe Your Nose With This Map

    The Travelling Handkerchief  has come to town, Fairburn's Map of the Country Twelve Miles Round London by E. Bourne, printed on calico, 590 x 540 mm, in 1831, a scarce, early handkerchief map. The map is circular, and reaches Teddington in the south west, clockside to Norwood, Harrow on the Hill, Chipping Barnet, Dagenham, Purley and Kingsston, wherever they are. I'm in Los Angeles, clockside to Westwood, harrowing on Barrington, Pico and Sepulveda; what do I know? This cartographical Kleenex™ is decorated by vignette views of Chelsea and Greenwich Hospitals in the bottom corners, and a banner heralding the title is held aloft in an eagle's beak.

    Greetings from Rare Book School at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia!

Law Books: History & Connoisseurship surveys printed and manuscript legal materials in Anglo-American, European, and Latin American Law. Taught by Mike Widener, Rare Book Librarian at the Lillian Goldman Law Library, Yale Law School, this course introduces students to legal bibliography and curation and instructs students on how focused, useful collections of law books are built.  Students will explore the production and distribution of law books, the philosophy and techniques of collecting, and will develop bibliographical tools through hands-on laboratory sessions.

  • Da Lucca a New York a Lugano. Giuseppe Martini libraio tra Otto e Novecento – A Conference in Lucca in October 2014

    Da Lucca a New York a Lugano. Giuseppe Martini libraio tra Otto e Novecento – A Conference in Lucca in October 2014

    From 17th to 18th October 2014 bibliophiles, scholars and rare book dealers will gather in Lucca (Italy) to hold a conference on the life, work and collections of Giuseppe Martini. Guiseppe Martini (1870-1944) was a contemporary of Leo S. Olschki and Ulrico Hoepli. Mario Armanni, the later director of the Libreria Antiquaria Hoepli, called him “l’homo bibliographicus”.  Martini’s library, formed during over thirty years of collecting, was considered to be one of the richest private collections of Italian literature in the world.  The Lucca conference in October 2014, officially supported by numerous Italian and international organizations – among them ILAB and the Italian Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (ALAI) – is dedicated to Giuseppe Martini’s extraordinary career and the historical background under which it developed.

    Antiquarian Book Fairs - Why do I have to play Lotto?

    On her brilliant new blog Ines Bellin of A Venue of Art Ltd. writes about rare books, beautiful manuscripts, recent catalogues, antiquarian book fairs and other amazing places for rare book dealers and collectors. - When one stands in the queue outside Ludwigsburg, the small fair that starts one day before the Stuttgart Antiquarian Book Fair, one gets a glimpse of all the well-known people of the global book-dealing community. As we are all very busy keeping up with the times, and must pick our appointments and appearances at fairs early in advance, I thought Leo Cadogan’s reasons for returning to Stuttgart would be worth hearing ...

    Collector Spotlight: David A. Williamson - Enhancing a Collection with Signatures and Artwork

    Part two of our interview with David A. Williamson, one of the largest Stephen King collectors in the world.

He lives in Fairfield, CT, is married and has three children.
