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.

Congress

1964 - Ravenna

By S.C. (Stanley Crowe?)
At the invitation of the Italian Association, approaching 200 delegates and friends, drawn from 14 nations, gathered at Milano-Marittima on Tuesday, September 1, for the 17th Congress of the ILAB. Milan-Marittima is a seaside resort on the Adriatic Coast, about 10 miles from Ravenna. It is entirely a modern development with spacious tree-lined avenues, and really an extension of neighbouring Cervia, whose history dates from Roman times.
While the Annual Congress is primarily an Annual General Meeting and performs an essential function in this respect, it is, however, in the accompanying social programme that most delegates find greatest interest. It lies in the special opportunities afforded in a gathering of this sort to meet or get to know those of like kind in other nationalities and, in particular, to learn more of the country in which the Congress takes place. The organising committee and the presidents of the various delegations all work hard. The ordinary delegates and their friends are mainly free to enjoy themselves. It is the prerogative of any member of any national association to join a congress and take advantage of a unique opportunity, on payment of the participation fee. I was such a one, so that this is the Congress as seen by a very ordinary delegate.

Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - Guiding Lights

I've ranted before about lighthouses being one of those subject areas from which collectors have mysteriously vanished. People scrabbling and clawing in the most fearsome way for lighthouse literature and then one day, more or less out of the blue, they don't want any at all. Not even the rarest material. I suspect that in this case, eBay and print-on-demand technology killed the market. The field was largely information driven, and once people got access to cheap reprints or bargain copies of scarce texts, the game was over for dealers like me.
