Nouvelles d'Asie concernant les livres rares

Publié le 28 Juin 2012
Depuis le milieu du 19° siècle, beaucoup de Japonais ressentent un réel intérêt pour les cultures, sociétés et économies américaines et européennes. Beaucoup ont souhaité devenir semblables aux pays très développés de l'Ouest. Les collectionneurs japonais et les universitaires lisent et collectionnent des livres occidentaux importants depuis déjà une centaine d'années, et plus particulièrement depuis ces cinquante dernières années. La plupart des nations asiatiques, contrairement au Japon, ont été méfiantes vis-à-vis des approches américaines et européennes. Beaucoup ont craint de "s'européaniser': préférant conserver leurs propres cultures et valeurs, en dépit de leur forte attirance pour les méthodes économiques occidentales.

1960 - 13th Congress of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, Scheveningen, 29th August to 3rd September

Back to the roots: The Preliminary Conference, organized by the Dutch booksellers and initiated by the "Father of the League" Menno Hertzberger, was held in Amsterdam in the year 1947. In 1960, the ILAB delegates from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and USA returned to The Netherlands for their 13th Congress. They spent four fruitful and delightful days in Scheveningen, with excursions to the famous libraries and museums in Amsterdam and Den Haag. Jack Joseph, at that time ABA President and one of 51 (!) British delegates, resumed: ""The harmony of this Congress had been perfect, due in part to two working days and two workless days, but in the main to the cordiality exemplified by the splendid feelings evinced by all."

Rare Book Cafe: A program for book lovers

We participated in an interesting project on Wednesday – the live broadcast of a conversation between book dealers in different parts of Florida on a new program called Rare Book Cafe. Although we had a formidable task before us – packing for the Brooklyn Books Art Photos and Design Expo – this little interlude on Wednesday afternoon was kind of fun, and a welcome respite. The project is sponsored by the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair, and is intended to serve as an online meeting place for people in the rare book trade and people who can't get enough of antiquarian books, who thrive on absorbing as much information as possible about them. You know who you are.
