In the Press - Rare Book Dealer Robert Schoisengeier featured in the TV series “Aufgetischt”

Publié le 21 Juil. 2018
A great place to deal with rare and beautiful books, right in the heart of Vienna, a few steps away from the State Opera House and the "Museums-Quartier", next to the National Library and the famous Art Museum: Robert Schoisengeier has been running the Antiquariat Burgverlag in Vienna (Burgring 1 + 3) for many years. He is specialized in rare and fine books on art, architecture and literature with a main interest in illustrated books, prints and drawings. Schoisengeier exhibits at the international antiquarian book fairs, publishes catalogues, offers his books in the internet and – most of all – owns one of the most wonderful antiquarian bookshops. Now Robert Schoisengeier and his shop were featured in the TV series "Aufgetischt".

Not This Time - 55th Annual Rare Books and Manuscript Librarian's Preconference

Where do you start with a place like Vegas? Bally's Hotel and Casino is hosting the 2014 Moose International convention and dealing with a chronic shortage of aquatic plant life, willow shoots, and other forage. Hairy guys with backwards baseball caps. Old men and their leisurewear. Fatties in mobile chairs work away, tethered to slot machines. A Bally's credit card at the other end of the line drips the money in and out. The tether prevents the card from being stolen, lost, or forgotten. Sorry, sir, no photographs. What is the plural of Moose ? Do the International Moose employ it?

MEMORANDUM DE LA LILA À L’ATTENTION DES AUTORITÉS JUDICIAIRES ITALIENNES

En Mars 2012, Monsieur le professeur Tomaso Montanari a été le premier à mettre en évidence un pillage culturel qui avait alors semblé se limiter à la Bibliothèque Girolamini basée à Naples. Nous savons maintenant que le directeur de la bibliothèque de l'époque, Marino Massimo de Caro, avait élargi ses pillages à d'autres bibliothèques en Italie : Montecassino, la Bibliothèque municipale de Naples, la Bibliothèque du Ministère de l'agriculture, un séminaire à Padoue, et la bibliothèque de l'Observatoire Ximines à Florence. Peu de temps après la découverte du vol, les autorités italiennes avaient annoncé que quatre livres provenant de la Bibliothèque Girolamini avaient été mis dans la vente publique numéro 59 (mai 2012) à Munich chez Zisska et Schauer, et avaient fait le nécessaire pour les faire saisir par la police allemande. La maison de vente a alors retiré tous les livres de cette vente - un total de 540 titres - et les a remis aux autorités allemandes à Munich, où ces livres sont stockés à ce jour.

"By any standard one of the giants of the rare book trade" - A Wake For The Still Alive: Peter B. Howard, Part 2

As my career in journalism fizzled out, my interest in antiquarian books and the rare book business grew, and by 1979 I was actively seeking a job somewhere, anywhere, in any position, in the Bay Area book trade. I told every friendly bookseller of my desire, but no job offer was forthcoming. Then one evening in early December the phone rang at home. It was Peter. The conversation went something very close to this: P: John, it's Peter Howard. Are you still looking for a job in the rare book trade?

Bouquinistes at an ILAB fair - a contradiction? NON!

Since the days of Renaissance, open air bookselling has happened along the Seine riverbanks. Tourist souvenirs aside, a bouquiniste find was often the beginning of a lifelong passion and first piece in a collection. Plying their trade on the famous banks of the Seine, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1991, the bouquinistes des quais are as emblematic of the French capital as the Eiffel Tower or Montmartre for the millions of French and foreign tourists who visit Paris every year.
