viaLibri launches German version of its popular website for booklovers: vialibri.net

The world's largest online marketplace for early, rare and out-of-print books is now available to German bibliophiles in their native language. When it started in 2006, viaLibri set itself apart from other similar sites by focusing on the more exacting needs of book collectors, librarians and bibliographic scholars. This important group of book buyers had always been frustrated by the limitations of existing websites that were built primarily as price comparison tools. Rejecting the prevailing assumption that online book buyers were only interested in cheap books, rather than rare or valuable ones, viaLibri built a powerful metasearch engine designed specifically to meet the needs of serious bibliophiles, and not just bargain hunters.

I chatted with the owner for a bit, and she told me that her real speciality were handwritten and "unique" books from the 16th to the 21st century (not just signed or dedicated). "One of a Kind" – which will actually be the title of her next – the second – catalogue. Daniela, who had graduated in conservation and restoration of books and paper objects, founded her firm in 2011. Before that she worked for Hartung & Hartung in Munich for a while, who more or less shanghaid her, when she came to collect a book there.

American boys, in the first half of the 20th Century, often found their heroes in print, tantalizingly displayed on the shelves of the corner drugstore. These heroes usually took two forms: the superhero, such as Superman, the Green Lantern, Spiderman, etc, who populated the comic book pages published, primarily, by DC and Marvel. Their other heroes were of the mundane, albeit of an idealized nature. Tom Swift. The Hardy Boys. Their ilk, the genre known as 20th Century Boys' Serial Fiction, shall be the subject of this short essay.
