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.

New York Antiquarian Book Fair 2012 - Field Day for the 1 %

A colleague approached me on the floor of the New York Book Fair and asked if I'd composed this week's blog yet. I told him I had not. He kindly offered to write it for me himself. It'd be a snap, he said – first the obligatory picture of booksellers slouched around the bar at Donohue's, then a photo of an unhappy dealer at set-up, surrounded by more books than he had room for, a shot of the eager line at opening, and two or three more showing people in the act of purchasing things. Add a funny story about something that happened to one of our colleagues, and a picture, with price and description, of a really neat item that I bought at the show, and it'd be done.
