ILAB Pop UP Book Fairs - A Message from ILAB President Norbert Donhofer

ear organizers and visitors of the ILAB Pop Up Book Fairs, dear colleagues and friends, It is now less than 36 hours before the ILAB Pop Up Book Fairs will start in Australia, and some thirty Pop Up fairs will follow around the globe before this event ends on the west coast of the United States. I take this opportunity to thank you very much indeed for joining us on April 23, 2015. You have created some unbelievable and impressive ideas to celebrate this day: from a woolshed in Dunkeld to a boat, shipping along the "Grachten" of Amsterdam, a whole street in Groningen, and a Brew-Pub in Portland, Oregon, and so many more brilliant ideas! There are two main reasons why ILAB had invented this series of Pop Up Fairs on UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day: one reason is that we have the feeling that we have to show our profession to the public, to make antiquarian bookselling more visible! I would therefore ask you to talk to as many people as possible, distribute catalogues, and tell the public about rare, valuable, and second-hand books, maps and prints.

Talks and Tours at Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair – November 1-2, 2013

Over its life, the Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair has become a fixture in the November calendar for book collectors and dealers from Britain, Europe and America. Warmer than Boston, more intimate than York, less formal than Paris – Chelsea has it all. Dealer and collectors love the fair: it's friendly and varied, the dealers have time to talk, there are plenty of books but it's not overwhelming. 'See you at Chelsea' has become a phrase familiar to everyone in the British rare book trade. This year's Fair will offer visitors an excellent opportunity to find the perfect antiquarian book among thousands brought to the Chelsea Old Town Hall from 1st to 2nd November. Besides the exquisite, extraordinary and unique items showcased by the 82 expert booksellers from the United Kingdom and abroad, book lovers will enjoy an amazing number of book-related talks and tours throughout the weekend.

Searching For Books In The Digital Age

Disruption came to the world of book searching and the result, for the consumers at least, was a dramatic change for the better. What was once impossible became possible. What was once difficult became simple. What was once costly became cheap. And the vast availability of books online, coupled with new and powerful tools to search for them, enabled serious bibliophiles to pursue their interests in ways that were unimaginable two decades before.

Collecting - The Clark Nova Express: Horror Fanzines, the Mimeo Revolution and William Burroughs

One of the perks about working on Reality Studio is the opportunity to get in contact with some very interesting people. Johnny Strike, Gary-Lee Nova, Jim and Roy Pennington. All have amazing stories and fantastic tales to tell. And then there is Graham Rae - a polarizing figure for some as a look back at old forum posts proves. Yet all polarizing figures have one thing in common: energy. Graham has chutzpah in spades. I am firmly in Graham's camp because I recognize and admire a follow obsessive. He wears his passions on his sleeve and his enthusiasm is contagious. In addition, he consistently brings interesting items to the Big Table, or Reality Studio, as the case may be.

Lost Lincoln letter returned to the Archives

The Washington Post reports: "A Civil War-era letter written by Abraham Lincoln that went missing at an unknown date has surfaced and has been returned to the National Archives . … An Archives employee saw the document listed for sale in 2009 and recognized it as belonging to the government. When contacted, Panagopous who was representing a family from Rhode Island in the sale, had already sold the documents to a New York dealer. Upon realizing the provenance of the papers, Panagopulos refunded the purchase price to the dealer to get them back and the Rhode Island family, in turn, agreed to refund the money they had been paid so the papers could be retuned to the government."

"Born in the mind of John Randle at the age of 14 when he first entered his school's press room, the Whittington Press started life in a disused gardener's cottage in 1971. Its first book, Richard Kennedy's A Boy at the Hogarth Press, was printed on weekends during 1971-1972 on an 1848 Columbian." An audio interview by Nigel Beale
