From 1946 to 1950 auctions were held under the company name "Ringbuchhandlung August Nethe Co." on the Hohenzollernring in downtown Cologne, in 1951 the name was changed to "Nethe and Venator". Rolf Venator has been part of this success story from the very beginning and has lead the company under the name "Venator KG" since 1953. The antiquarian book auction house had its first seat in the Breite Strasse and from there moved to St. Apern Strasse. In 1984 Prof. Henrik R. Hanstein joined the company as a partner and the offices were moved to the Kunsthaus Lempertz building.

On April 23, 2015, this day will be a special day for ILAB. In cooperation with UNESCO ILAB affiliates will organize Pop Up Book Fairs across the world. Starting the day in Australia, the fairs will open their doors in unusual places one after another from Australia to Asia, South Africa, Europe and the United States. <br /><br />There are only three things you need to do to organize an ILAB Pop Up Fair:<br /><br />Find a venue, set up some tables ...<br /><em><br />Invite colleagues to participate ...<br /><br />Invite your customers to come ...<br /><br />... and get it started!</em> <br /><br />ILAB Pop-up fairs are great - you bring very little stock, just a few good books, put them out on a table and you are not exhibiting for long. The advantage is that they will be low or no cost for the dealers to take part in and will not require anything like the organization of the traditional fairs. <br /><br /></p> <h3 class="texte_rouge">AUSTRALIA - JAPAN - RUSSIA &ndash; SOUTH AFRICA - HUNGARY - AUSTRIA - GERMANY - ITALY - SPAIN - NETHERLANDS - UNITED KINGDOM - USA ...</h3> <p><br />... and anywhere else in the world where you decide to be a part of it!<br /><br />ILAB's participation in World Book and Copyright Day is a rare opportunity for ILAB affiliates to work together on the same project, on the same day, on a project which promotes the future of our trade while at the same time reaching out beyond the world of antiquarian books.<br /><br />&gt;&gt;&gt; <a href="ILABPopUpBookFairs.blogspot.de" target="_blank">Click here to learn more</a></p> </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2288-ilab_pop_up_book_fairs_all_around_the_world_on_unesco_world_book__copyright_day.html 2016/04/23 Rare Books: Still So Much to Learn and Discover - ANZAAB/State Library of NSW Conference <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2526/100/100/image.jpg" alt="Rare Books: Still So Much to Learn and Discover - ANZAAB/State Library of NSW Conference" align="left" /> <p>Rare Books: Still So Much to Learn and Discover is a must go to conference for anyone interested in rare books and associated materials on paper. It will particularly appeal to special collections librarians, collectors and antiquarian booksellers but is open to anyone interested. Over two days, subjects such as the building of collections of books and ephemera, research, theft and digitisation will be discussed. Well known author and entertaining speaker Nicholas Basbanes will speak from the USA on the history of paper and the State Libary of NSW will offer special behind the scenes tours of the library.<br /><br />The conference will address both educational and practical needs of the professionals working with special collections and in the trade, and will equip them to do their jobs with greater insight and understanding. Collectors will benefit from the opportunity to hear from the professionals and other collectors giving all three groups an update on what is going on in the world of rare books today.<br /><br /></p> <h3 class="texte_rouge">ILAB Pop Up Book Fair on 23 April 2016</h3> <p><br />The two-day conference will culminate in another must go to for all who are interested in rare books, manuscripts and all printed material in general.

A collaboration with the George Eastman Museum of Film and Photography, the show features more than eighty works from the 1840s to the present and reveals the many ways the camera can transmit not only the outward appearance of its subject but also narratives, arguments, and ideas.<br /><br />Over the past 175 years, photography has been adopted by, and adapted to, countless fields of endeavor, from art to zoology and from fashion to warfare. Sight Reading features a broad range of material - pioneering x-rays and aerial views, artifacts of early photojournalism, and recent examples of conceptual art - organized into groupings that accentuate the variety and suppleness of photography as a procedure. In 1936, artist L&aacute;szl&oacute; Moholy-Nagy (1895&ndash;1946) defined &ldquo;the illiterate of the future&rdquo; as someone &ldquo;ignorant of the use of the camera as well as the pen.&rdquo; The JPEG and the &ldquo;Send&rdquo; button were decades away, but Moholy-Nagy was not the first observer to argue that photography belonged to the arts of commentary and persuasion.

Examining a range of early and modern rare children&rsquo;s books through the lenses of publishing, authorship, illustration, design, printing and reception, this course addresses the following: What constitutes a children&rsquo;s book? For how many centuries have children&rsquo;s books been published and marketed? How has their evolution been affected by factors such as religious and educational ideas and practices or cultural norms in a given period?

Sessions are designed to explore the fundamental principles of map history to provide a framework in which the details of any map from any period can be accommodated. Stress is laid on the relationship between word and image, and the role of maps in books, as a counterbalance to the traditional way of viewing maps in isolation. </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2514-london_rare_books_school_week_1_-__a_history_of_maps_and_mapping.html 2016/06/20 London Rare Books School, Week 1 - An Introduction to Bibliography <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2515/100/100/image.jpg" alt="London Rare Books School, Week 1 - An Introduction to Bibliography" align="left" /> An introduction to the various elements of bibliography and to set those elements within their appropriate historical and methodological contexts.

The novels to be studied are: Northanger Abbey, Jane Eyre, Bleak House, Dracula, and Howard's End. None of these novels was written for readers in the twenty-first century so, in order to move students away from the Whigish view adopted in many English departments, we need to understand how contemporaries might have read these books. This requires that students understand not only the broad historical context, but also significant details of the material environment in which those first readers lived, and the ways in which books and newspapers were produced, delivered - and read in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2516-london_rare_books_school_week_1_-__the_material_history_of_the_english_novel_1800-1914.html 2016/06/20 London Rare Books School, Week 1 - The Medieval Book <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2517/100/100/image.jpg" alt="London Rare Books School, Week 1 - The Medieval Book" align="left" /> <em>Professor Michelle P.
