Conférence préliminaire

Publié le 17 Juil. 2013
En 1947, des représentants de Grande-Bretagne, France, Danemark, Suède et des Pays-Bas se réunirent à Amsterdam pour une conférence préliminaire. Ils discutèrent de l’idée de Hertzberger de former une organisation qui contrecarrerait l’animosité et les méfiances engendrées par la Seconde Guerre Mondiale. La nouvelle Ligue Internationale de la Librairie Ancienne devrait susciter des liens d’amitié et de compréhension entre les nations afin de jeter les bases d’un marché professionnel plus juste.

Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - William Bartram's Trials and Travels

Everybody has to find their niche in the world and for William Bartram it wasn't life as a merchant. He was decidedly unsuited for business of any kind. He was a nature lover, and eventually established himself as a botanist. Lucky for us.

Rare Book Cafe: A program for book lovers

We participated in an interesting project on Wednesday – the live broadcast of a conversation between book dealers in different parts of Florida on a new program called Rare Book Cafe. Although we had a formidable task before us – packing for the Brooklyn Books Art Photos and Design Expo – this little interlude on Wednesday afternoon was kind of fun, and a welcome respite. The project is sponsored by the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair, and is intended to serve as an online meeting place for people in the rare book trade and people who can't get enough of antiquarian books, who thrive on absorbing as much information as possible about them. You know who you are.

They were responsible for safeguarding and spreading the knowledge that came from the Greeks, but which had been lost, due to lack of interest by the West.
