Sotheran’s: 250 Years of Bookselling

It's rare that an antiquarian bookshop should have a history as long and rich as the jewels of its stock. But with Sotheran's in London's Sackville Street celebrating its 250th anniversary this year, it can justifiably lay claim to the title 'oldest antiquarian bookshop in the world'. James Sprague tells Beatie Wolfe about an amazing history and the unique pressures of maintaining such an important name.

Why Collect Proofs?

Proof copies, if you follow your nose and are willing to take small risks, can be great investments - because even if the author doesn't "hit" and the monetary values don't go sky-high, you've still got a scarce, unusual, often textually significant version of the author's work.

Book Review: 'The Prague Cemetery' by Umberto Eco

"Bookish digressions and odd cultural details are two reasons why we read Umberto Eco. He takes great pleasure in showing readers the monastic care of books in "The Name of the Rose," the kabbalah in "Foucault's Pendulum" and day-to-day life in Mussolini's Italy in "The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana."
