  • Facing the Late Victorians - Portraits of Writers and Artists from the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection

    Facing the Late Victorians - Portraits of Writers and Artists from the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection

    When the Tampa Bay Hotel opened in 1891, Hotel guests were reading Robert Louis Stevenson, Thomas Hardy, and George Eliot and talking about the latest paintings by James McNeill Whistler and John Singer Sargent. They congregated on the veranda and in the Grand Salon to recite the poems of Alfred Lord Tennyson and chuckled with amusement at Oscar Wilde’s witticisms.

  • Analyzing Literature by Words and Numbers

    Analyzing Literature by Words and Numbers

    How often do words like “God,” “love,” “work,” “science” or “industrial” appear in British book titles from the French Revolution in 1789 to the beginning of World War I in 1914? Thousands? Millions? What do you guess? Dan Cohen and Fred Gibbs, historians at George Manson University, try to find the exact answer by means of statistic analysis.

  • In Memoriam Menno Hertzberger (1897 - 1982)

    In Memoriam Menno Hertzberger (1897 - 1982)

    For Menno Hertzberger the addition 'Internationaal' to his firm's name was not just an embellishment: From the very beginning onwards his business was internationally orientated, and it aimed for a wide public of bookcollectors, librarians and fellow-dealers. As early as 1921 Menno held his first auction-sale and he soon became known as an important auctioneer as well. The growth of the firm necessitated a move to larger premises and in 1935 the firm's new address became Keizersgracht 610 in Amsterdam, a large and elegant house along one of the famous canals. Menno Hertzberger, the Father of the League, died in 1986. Bob de Graaf's obituary characterizes him as a truly international antiquarian bookseller and a man with a vision: to unite dealers worldwide under one roof, the ILAB.

    Ever lasting values - Excellent sales (and the youngest customer) at the 52nd Stuttgart Antiquarian Book Fair

    Ever lasting values are good investments, and of these rare books, autographs, manuscripts and prints are the best - financially, intellectually and aesthetically. On Sunday evening the 52nd Stuttgart Antiquarian Book Fair closed after three days of huge public interest. Most exhibitors from Europe and abroad were happy with five- and six-digit sales.

  • Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair – 6-8 November, 2014, at Copenhagen’s Beautiful Round Tower

    Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair – 6-8 November, 2014, at Copenhagen’s Beautiful Round Tower

    It is with great pleasure that the Danish Antiquarian Booksellers Association (ABF) will host the Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair from 6th to 8th November 2014. As in 2011, we have once again been fortunate enough to host this event in the beautiful, old Library Hall of Copenhagen’s Round Tower, which constitutes a unique setting for this weekend of celebrating the book. The last antiquarian book fair in Copenhagen in 2011 turned out to be a great success, not only due to the unprecedented number of exhibitors from all over Europe and the large number of visitors, but also due to the interesting exhibitions of private collections and several workshops, in which some of Denmark's best book binders, paper restorers, and paper artists were presenting their works in progress.
