    An unexpected but extremely appreciated meeting with Arturo Pregliasco
    Par Norbert Donhofer - ILAB President 2014 - 2016 Publié depuis le 05 sept. 2017

    No, this time: no excuses! For decades I had promised to see the „Pregliasco’s“ and other Turin-based booksellers, but, and I simply don’t know why, it didn’t happen for so many years. Although quite strange, as I had not only exhibited for many years at the Milan Fair, and, this would probably count more, had spent more than 20 years of skiing in the „Mont Blanc” area – in France, Italy, and Switzerland. Turin was never that far away, but as you all know: the next fair ahead, having to prepare a catalogue, an important customer wants to see me tomorrow, …

    First editions and lasting treasures: how to be a book collector
    Par Michael Parsons Publié depuis le 01 sept. 2017
    Thinking of investing in rare books? Do it for the love of books, not money, say the experts

    Rare and antiquarian books can be surprisingly valuable. A first-edition copy of Ulysses by James Joyce, published in Paris in 1922, can sell for €100,000 and sometimes much more; Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, published in London in 1726, up to €50,000. But, like art, most books will never become really valuable, and collectors are generally motivated by love of literature and books rather than the prospect of making a fast buck.

    Wenn's um die Wurst geht - Aus dem Leben eines Antiquars (German language only)
    Par Barbara van Benthem Publié depuis le 23 août 2017
    Über eine bekannte Angebotsplattform für antiquarische Bücher erreichte uns kürzlich eine Anfrage. Der Kunde interessierte sich für einen Brief von Ernst Barlach. Wie immer hatten wir den Text transkribiert, die historischen Hintergründe des Briefes ebenso wie die Vergleichspreise der letzten, sagen wir, 20 Jahre, gründlich recherchiert und den Brief samt Inhalt und Adressaten so ausführlich wie möglich (und nötig) beschrieben. Nun war ein Foto gewünscht. Natürlich kamen wir diesem Wunsch gern nach, denn auch wenn jedes Foto eines Unikates dieses Unikat dem Mainstream etwas näher bringt, ist es verständlich, dass niemand die Katze im Sack kaufen möchte. Auf unsere umgehende Beantwortung der Bildanfrage flatterte uns ein Angebot ins Haus:

    "In Good Order But Poor Condition" - ILAB Patron of Honour Dr. Michael Knoche in F.A.Z.
    Publié depuis le 02 août 2017

    The former director of the Anna Amalia Library in Weimar and ILAB Patron of Honour recently wrote in the Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper about digitisation, book restoration and the state of Germany's libraries. 

    "In Good Order But Poor Condition" is an interesting read about the importance of digitisation, but also about the need for research material not only to be available in digitised format.
