It was his first ILAB Congress – and certainly not the last one. Peter Fritzen, a specialist for rare books, maps and prints who runs a wonderful bookshop in Trier (Germany), was among the – regrettably - very few German dealers who took part in the 41st ILAB Congress in Paris from 13th to 16th April 2014.

As a teenager, Lampe was a voracious reader (E.T.A. Hoffmann, Kleist, Büchner, Rilke, Thomas Mann, Kafka, Boccaccio, Cervantes, Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe) and an insatiable book buyer: 'It really is an illness with me.
