Le méta-moteur de recherche de la LILA - Un interview avec Jim Hinck

En voilà une question ! Je pourrai sans doute remplir toutes les pages de la Lettre d'information avec ma réponse. Mais je ne le ferai pas. Par contre, je peux résumer ma pensée en deux mots : sites personnels. Comme nous le savons, un des impacts les plus négatifs de l'internet sur la librairie ancienne a été de supprimer le contact direct entre le libraire et le collectionneur et de le remplacer par des transactions contrôlées par des tiers. En ce faisant, nous perdons nos identités et l'opportunité de communiquer avec nos clients. La solution sera de permettre à chacun d'entre nous d'avoir son propre site avec lequel nos clients pourront s'identifier et où ils auront envie de revenir. Il y a déjà quelques libraires qui ont tenté l'aventure. C'est là, je crois, la direction du futur.

So you truly want to present the best image of yourself that you can." With Brian Cassidy's musings on his first catalogue, ILAB starts a new series on its website about "Young Dealers / Old Books".

The assassination and death of Abraham Lincoln on April 14th and 15th, 1865 sent a shock throughout the nation, generating an intense desire by the American public to find out details about this tragedy. Printmakers, both for illustrated newspapers and for separately-issued prints, met this public interest with an outpouring of images. As there was no television nor internet at the time, and as there are few photographs of any of the events surrounding Lincoln's death, these prints provided the public at that time with their only visual assess to the assassination and its aftermath ...

Collecting Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania)

The prominence of printed material relating to Van Diemen's Land – that is, Tasmania before 1855 – amongst desirable Australiana is not at all surprising given that it was the second of the Australian colonies to be established (some three decades before Port Phillip/Victoria or South Australia).
