John Carter's ABC for Book Collectors

Like all good reference books, the ABC for Book Collectors conveys much in a little, sets limits to its subject and keeps within them, and — saving grace — treats that subject with individuality as well as authority, in a style at once concise, forthright and witty.

Show me the Bunny. Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit. The 3 First Editions

I have been asked in the past, although not often, Why are there 3 first editions of Peter Rabbit? How can that be? The answer is that there aren't really.

In 1960, the ILAB delegates from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland and USA returned to The Netherlands for their 13th Congress. They spent four fruitful and delightful days in Scheveningen, with excursions to the famous libraries and museums in Amsterdam and Den Haag. Jack Joseph, at that time ABA President and one of 51 (!) British delegates, resumed: "The harmony of this Congress had been perfect, due in part to two working days and two workless days, but in the main to the cordiality exemplified by the splendid feelings evinced by all."
