  • Books about Books: A History of Oak Knoll Press, Part 6: Paul Wakeman Dives In!

    Books about Books: A History of Oak Knoll Press, Part 6: Paul Wakeman Dives In!

    On a side note, I was becoming very active in the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA), first serving on the Board in 1982 and then becoming Chair of their Finance Committee in 1989 and Treasurer in 1990. Millie and I enjoyed the international congresses that the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) conducted and began to attend them in 1990, starting with the Tokyo Congress. This event led to many contacts in publishing that eventually paid dividends, proving yet again that the cross-over between the antiquarian book world and the publishing world is a very healthy relationship.

  • Rare Books to Honour the Still Alive - “Festschriften and The Private Library”

    Rare Books to Honour the Still Alive  - “Festschriften and The Private Library”

    Memorials are published after the death of an author, artist or scientist.  “It is rare that such tributes are composed while an honoree is still alive, though such tributes are not unknown.” “Festschriften” – there is no English or American equivalent for what is meant by the German word – are addressed to scientists during their life and career. L. D. Mitchell introduces a field of collecting rare books which are popular in the scholarly world, but nearly unknown to bibliophiles.
