A Personal Library

Publié le 17 Déc. 2009
I do not think enough people have a personal library. A library with real wood shelves, not boxes under the bed and a library that has to be dusted (once in awhile). A library where all your treasures are placed... just the way you want them.

Rare Books as Investments

Publié le 09 Déc. 2009
Rare books as investments? "I think probably the only thing worse than having your rare bookseller manage your assets portfolio, is to have your investment broker choose your rare books. One might want to govern oneself accordingly. After all, as long as you buy the books that you love..."

Organising the Private Book Collection

Publié le 07 Déc. 2009
You've been buying books for a while now but in a haphazard fashion, buying them as the subject matter or some other aspect of them e.g., binding or association inscriptions, illustrations or bookplates or indeed anything at all, appealed to you. There are so many of them now that you begin to think that you have a "collection", particularly as you now seem to be mostly buying books in a field which has become of particular interest to you...

Shakespeare's First Folio for the first time ever on display in India

A copy of one of the most famous books in the world - 'Shakespeare's First Folio' - will go on display in the CSMVS Museum in Mumbai this month, on loan from the British Library in London.

Cataloguing Rare Books - May We Please Have Our Description Back?

I have an idea for something that might actually provide the protection that copyright alone does not. As you might expect, it involves, once again, the internet. If that is where the crimes are now being committed, that is where we should put our cops to work. What I have in mind is a descriptive bibliographic database where booksellers can publish all their copyrighted descriptions in a way that clearly establishes priority and ownership. It would be a public place where you can claim what is yours. But it would also be much more than that. If enough booksellers participated, an open searchable database of this nature would soon constitute a valuable bibliographic reference that collectors, librarians, students and scholars could use for all types of research. It would make a useful permanent resource out of information that is now mostly ephemeral.

"Caro Onomonimo ... speriamo di non liberarci dai libri"

Avere l'ambizione di presentare Umberto Eco, che ha inaugurato la Fiera del Libro di Torino con la conversazione Non sperate di liberarvi dei libri, può sembrare pretenzioso: ma non intendo qui parlare del professore di semiotica, dello scrittore italiano vivente più conosciuto nel mondo, bensì di Umberto Eco bibliofilo, raccontando quelle che sono le relazioni pericolose tra il collezionista ed il proprio pusher di libri antichi: un'esperienza unica, che consente al libraio di entrare nello spirito, ancor prima che nel portafoglio, del cliente.

Collecting Baedeker Travel Guides

Baedeker's travel guides were the premium travel guides of the second half of the 19th and the first part of the 20th century, giving rise to the verse: "Kings and governments may err – but never Mr. Baedeker." They are keenly collected, and some of them are extremely rare, like the famous and seldom seen "Athen" Baedeker from 1896, which was not sold outside Greece.

Rare Books in the Press: Monster Smackdown - The Trojan Horse Vs. Godzilla At Cornell Library

"Man has a long history of creating 'famous' animals. Some are mythical or literary, like the Minotaur or Toto. Others are real animals, elevated to celebrity status like Rin Tin Tin, or more recently, Internet sensation Maru the Cat. A fascinating new exhibit at Cornell University's Carl A. Kroch Library uses rare books, manuscripts, photographs, and artifacts to explore 'how and why humans choose to elevate certain individual animals or species to the status of divinities, emblems, mascots, heroes, or celebrities'."
