Collecting Private Press Books - John Dieter Brinks: Von der Bedeutung des Pressendrucks

Publié le 13 Fév. 2015
George Bernard Shaw once said: "Nothing on earth is more precious than a really beautiful book, With well established columns, in full black type, With exquisitely incorporated illustrations. However, nowadays people prefer to read books instead of looking at them." At the Stuttgart Antiquarian Book Fair 2015 book collector and John Dieter Brinks hold a remarkable speech about the beauty of the book - with regard to the history of the early 20th century private presses. In his speech he followed the traces of the excellent book artists of the Kelmscott and Doves Press in England and the Ernst-Ludwig-Presse and Cranach Presse in Germany. Some of the most outstanding examples - copies from the Barbara Achilles Stiftung Hamburg - were shown in an exhibition and are now documented in a catalogue published by the German Antiquarian Booksellers' Association (VDA). Thank you very much to John Dieter Brinks and the VDA for giving permission to publish his speech on the ILAB website:

How I Became a Bibliophile and Other Diverse Matters

It is a pleasure to be talking to you this evening. When Dianne and Kay generously invited me to speak to the Society, many different topics came to mind. I will attempt to cover several of them: how I became a bibliophile; some highpoints of my bibliophilia, with a focus on two books of special importance to me, both of them published anonymously; how I came to write Rare; some points about Rare; and a few final remarks about the future of books. Covering all these topics in 25 minutes might be difficult. We will soon see whether I can fit all these clowns into one Volkswagen. - Transcript of a talk given by Stuart Kells at a gathering of the Redmond Barry Society at Kay Craddock Antiquarian Bookseller in Collins Street, Melbourne
