A FORETASTE - ILAB CONGRESS & INTERNATIONAL ANTIQUARIAN BOOK FAIR, BUDAPEST 2016

Published on 23 Aug. 2016
"In just over a month, Budapest will welcome you in beautiful summerly autumn colors. The bridges over the Danube will glow in darker but vividly warm colors, walks in the Castle District, on the cobbled streets of Buda are the most pleasant at the end of September. The still warmish evenings in the uniquely restored but still romantically dilapidated ruin pub, Ankert, guarantees merriment. The autumn delicacies and delicate horses can give you a kind of entertainment in the Lázár Equestrian Park that you have never experienced before. And finally, cruising on the waves of the our treasure-river, the Danube, will soothe all turbulences of the soul while good company and the pleasures of the table will make you feel at home in Budapest."

Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - Alexander Pope’s Legacy of Satire and Scholarship

Pope left behind an ingenious translation of Homer's Iliad, along with a robust body of poetry and criticism. Though history has not always been kind to Pope, he's recognized as a truly masterful poet whose influence can still be felt.

However, I'm not ready to cash in my chips on the "who you know, not what you know game" (at least not for the moment even though I do indeed know a fair number of authors, publishers, editors and agents). Yet, this very same desire to write along with the revelation below is the key to my beginnings as a publisher.
