History of the London International Antiquarian Book Fair - Founded in 1958

The idea that the ABA could organize book fairs to give provincial antiquarian booksellers (of which there was still at least one in most of Britain's market towns in the 1950's) a temporary shop window in London came from a small group of booksellers who, in the summer of 1957, rented one of Sotheby's galleries in Bond Street during the auctioneer's closed season and offered their books for sale on some simple shelving.

Umberto Eco (1932-2016)

Il était, à tous points de vue, un penseur brillant et un homme très cultivé et instruit. Ce qui compte encore plus est le fait qu'il posait un oeil critique sur son pays aimé, l'Italie, et qu'il n'hésitait pas à s'opposer à de nombreux politiciens lorsqu'il avait le sentiment qu'ils avaient tort.
