Bernard M. Rosenthal, Dictionary of Abbreviations

Publié le 07 Déc. 2009
"German and Italian antiquarian booksellers and auctioneers are very fond of using abbreviations in their catalogs, sometimes on a rather lavish scale. This enables them to convey a large amount of information in a relatively short space, but readers not completely fluent in those languages are likely to be left somewhat bewildered, even discouraged, by strings of vowels and consonants occurring either singly or in unfamiliar combinations in the midst of what would otherwise be a fairly comprehensible text. For them, this little dictionary, the first one of its kind, I think, may come in handy. Each abbreviation is followed by the full resolution of the German and Italian word and by its English translation, in most cases with one or more examples illustrating the context and the combinations in which the abbreviation is most likely to occur." Bernard M. Rosenthal, A Dictionary of Abbreviations Commonly Used by German and Italian Antiquarian Booksellers and Auctioneers Bernard M. Rosenthal's Dictionary was published by the League in 1993.

Richard Francis Burton - English Explorer, Scholar, Soldier and Diplomat (1821-1890)

"Quite unsuited and ill-prepared for life at Oxford, but enjoying its social life, he was in 1842 rusticated from the college for attending a horse race. Shortly after returning to an aunt's house in Hampstead, London, he bribed himself into the army of the East India Company as a second lieutenant in the 18th Regiment of the Bombay Native Infantry. After a crash course in Hindustani, and having taught himself a little Arabic, he sailed from Gravesend on 18.6.42 in the barque "John Knox", bound for India via the Cape of Good Hope ..." The life, deeds and works of the British explorer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, ethnologist, spy, linguist, poet, fencer and diplomat Richard Francis Burton, by Raymond Howgego.

Young Dealers / Old Books - Book Fairs, Hurricanes, Puppies, Oh My!

"On Tuesday, August 23rd I woke up late. I had set my alarm for 7 a.m., so that I could take a much needed shower and after hitting snooze for over an hour I abruptly woke up at 8:20, tied my hair up, threw on a dress and ran out the door. From that moment on it seemed as though all of Philadelphia was involved in a plot to keep me from my goal of an 8-hour work day. First the contretemps with my alarm, then loads of tourists crossing the street and finally the dreaded tour buses that haunt 5th and Market all summer long. I had just about given up when I finally reached the other side of the bridge. Five minutes to nine I get a phone call from Tom saying that Matt had gotten sick and did I want to go to Baltimore for the book fair?" Do you remember your first book fair? Ashley Wilde is the young cataloguing talent at Between the Covers. Her first book fair took place in - Baltimore.
