London Rare Books School, Week 2 - Modern First Editions: Dealing, Collecting, and the Market

decoration06 July 2015|10 July 2015
A practical course intended to explore and examine the present-day market in literary first editions of relatively ‘modern’ vintage – the era commencing approximately from the demise of the three-volume novel in the 1890s. There will be reflection on the history, problems and problematic nature of this market, but the course will range across all areas and provide a thorough grounding and background for collectors, booksellers, librarians, academics and others, who (either professionally or privately) engage or seek to engage with ‘modern firsts’, and require a more detailed insight into the assumptions, nuances, rationale and operation of this market.
