Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair – 6-8 November, 2014, at Copenhagen’s Beautiful Round Tower

It is with great pleasure that the Danish Antiquarian Booksellers Association (ABF) will host the Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair from 6th to 8th November 2014. As in 2011, we have once again been fortunate enough to host this event in the beautiful, old Library Hall of Copenhagen's Round Tower, which constitutes a unique setting for this weekend of celebrating the book. The last antiquarian book fair in Copenhagen in 2011 turned out to be a great success, not only due to the unprecedented number of exhibitors from all over Europe and the large number of visitors, but also due to the interesting exhibitions of private collections and several workshops, in which some of Denmark's best book binders, paper restorers, and paper artists were presenting their works in progress.

The Rare Book Trade - Fresh Carpets

Recently, on the Internet discussion lists of the two biggest bookselling trade groups - IOBA and ABAA - I've been reading disheartening reports. Sales are down. Postage is up. And the big listing sites like AMAZON, ABE and Alibris are raising fees, reducing service and enforcing increasingly byzantine procedures aimed at making it easier and more profitable for them rather than the book dealers who patronize them. Sounds like the way gun nuts talk about their Second Amendment rights. Python coils, and all that. Louis Collins, however, is doing just fine.

Why You Collect? Why I Collect. Why I Oughta… A Day With Comic Art Collector Warren Bernard

I'm curious to hear from readers about how, or whether, the concept of 'rarity' entered your lives, and how it has expressed itself. Have you become, like Warren, a passionate collector of some obscure and wonderful class of object? Or, like me, become a dealer - that is, someone with all of the instincts, but none of the patience, of a collector? Or were you that guy out in the Best Buy parking lot at 3 in the morning? And how have other circumstances in your life - relative wealth or poverty; marriage and children; career, religion, race, politics, sexual orientation - how do you reckon these have informed your collecting (or non-collecting) habits?

Rare Books in the Press: This Is Why Your Used Bookstore Clerk Hates You

"Although bookstore workers love their customers, or are at least morally obligated to, sometimes the love is so great it turns murderous. Ever tried to finish all-you-can-eat coconut shrimp? That's the love we're dealing with here. Although your narrator worked at a used bookstore just outside of the city more than a decade ago, he shut his eyes tight, remembered three years of Fat Slice Pizza, and relived some moments of quiet desperation." Michael Leaverton knows: "This Is Why Your Used Bookstore Clerk Hates You"
