  • Some Features of the Antiquarian Book Trade in Russia

    Some Features of the Antiquarian Book Trade in Russia

    During the last 15-20 years Russia has experienced a significant increase of public interest in collecting antiques, including old and rare books, and as a consequence - intensive development of the antique trade.

  • John Marrin - 18 Ford Village, Northumberland

    John Marrin - 18 Ford Village, Northumberland

    This is a report from what has been a little bit like Ice Station Zebra since 23rd December. Today is 13th January and we have had our first postal delivery at home for ten days. I was impressed by our postman, Rob, who said he felt the mail was starting to pile up (snow-like) at the sorting office, so went well out of his way, slithering on ice, to bring us the backlog.

  • Talking Shop in Silent Street - Tony Cox of Claude Cox Old & Rare Books

    Talking Shop in Silent Street - Tony Cox of Claude Cox Old & Rare Books

    My first scent of the world of antiquarian books had also come when I was still at school. Saturday afternoons would be spent in the many-storeyed dusty rooms of Thornton’s in Oxford -not looking for anything in particular, but taking great pleasure in handling an eighteenth century book, as a physical object as much as anything else.

  • The ILAB Metasearch and the Future of the Online Book Trade - An Interview with Jim Hinck

    The ILAB Metasearch and the Future of the Online Book Trade - An Interview with Jim Hinck

    If you are really interested in the “big picture” then you have actually asked the wrong question. We should really be asking, instead, about the future of rare book-buying on the internet. We cannot know where we are headed without knowing where our customers want to go. So put yourself in a collector’s shoes. If you love rare books and want to own a lot of them there has never been a better time to be alive.

  • Win the Battle against the Bookworm

    Win the Battle against the Bookworm

    Mother Nature can wreak havoc on rare books. Sunning, water damage, and humidity can all cause damage to your collection. Another enemy of your books may also be lurking on your shelves: the dreaded bookworm.  They’ll tunnel right into the block, riddling the book with countless gullies and channels.

  • Collecting Rare Books, First Editions and Cartoons - Syd Hoff

    Collecting Rare Books, First Editions and Cartoons - Syd Hoff

    th September is the birthday of cartoonist and children's book author Syd Hoff (1912), who is best remembered for his Danny and the Dinosaur (1958) and more than 60 books in the HarperCollins beginning reader "I Can Read" series. Hoff sold his first cartoon to The New Yorker at age 18. His work also appeared in Esquire, Look magazine and other publications. Under the pseudonym A. Redfield, Hoff produced a cartoon series The Ruling Clawss for the Communist newspaper The Daily Worker in the 1930s and 1940s. He also illustrated advertising for Eveready Batteries, Jell-O, Rambler and other brands. But it was the children's books that brought him the greatest recognition.
