Collectors on Tour - Masonic Lodges in Constantinople (not Istanbul)

Publié le 21 Jan. 2016
Working with rare and valuable books has a tendency to make the extraordinary seem rather ordinary. You start to wonder how certain agglomerations of leather, cloth, paper and ink can be worth so much. These doubts are cast aside, however, when confronted with something which makes a personal connection with you. The truth is that books, letters and diaries provide the most direct links between individuals from the past and those living in the present.

Publié le 12 Avril 2011

Il mestiere del libraio antiquario

La natura internazionale dell'Associazione sta alla base delle regole di comportamento fissate nella Raccolta di Usi e Consuetudini a cui devono fare riferimento i diversi statuti delle associazioni nazionali. Più che del rispetto di codici e codicilli si tratta di un habitus mentale: il libraio antiquario è tenuto a comportarsi in modo irreprensibile dal punto di vista professionale e a cercare sempre, nell'eventualità di dispute, un accordo ragionevole, un gentlemen agreement. L'I.L.A.B. conta oggi circa 2000 membri, di cui circa 120 sono i librai italiani iscitti all'A.L.A.I.

20th Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair, November 5-6, 2010

The friendliest and most approachable event of the antiquarian book fair calendar: If you are already in the trade, an existing collector, or simply curious about old, antiquarian, collectable books, maps and ephemera, then the Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair at the Chelsea Old Town Hall on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th November is not to be missed. There are 78 exhibitors this year and the beautiful Chelsea Old Town Hall will be filled with interesting and collectable items from 16th to 21st centuries and books to suit all pockets – from £10 to £10,000. You will find everything from books for children to books on chess, counter culture, China (or china) and Churchill, at Chelsea. Are you looking for an unusual present for a friend, colleague or relative? Is there a subject, author or period of history that specially attracts you? Perhaps you have been thinking of collecting books but are unsure of where to start, what to look for, who to approach or what on earth booksellers mean by yapp edges, pochoir plates or slightly foxed ... If so, then Chelsea is the place to window shop and to satisfy your curiosity about the world of antiquarian and collectable books.
