"In Good Order But Poor Condition" - ILAB Patron of Honour Dr. Michael Knoche in F.A.Z.

The former director of the Anna Amalia Library in Weimar and ILAB Patron of Honour recently wrote in the Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper about digitisation, book restoration and the state of Germany's libraries. "In Good Order But Poor Condition" is an interesting read about the importance of digitisation, but also about the need for research material not only to be available in digitised format.

Collecting - Who Is the Real Robinson Crusoe?

With any truly great novel, the questions are usually the same. Where did the story come from? What inspired it? Were the characters or plot based on real-life elements? But these tried-and-true questions might mean a little more when asked about Daniel Defoe's 1719 debut novel Robinson Crusoe, a book literary scholars the world over regard as one of the first realistic fiction novels and one that helped popularize the form we still crave today.

International League Conference - Munich 1957

What is a "traditional Munich Weisswurst snack"? ILAB booksellers who attended the 10th ILAB Congress in Munich in 1957 know: "The snack consisted of white sausages, rolls and large glasses of beer, and as soon as the glasses and plates were emptied they were replenished by waitresses wearing Bavarian costume." They also admired the beautiful Baroque churches at Ettas, Wies and Andechs, and a stunning collection of incunabula from the Bavarian State Library.

ILAB Punks Out

Ever wonder what rare booksellers do after a book fair? If you guessed "almost anything" you'd probably be correct. But one particular past-time that rare booksellers pursue is music. Many ILAB members are musicians, both professional and otherwise. This year, after the doors closed on the Friday of the New York Antiquarian Book Fair, several dozen rare booksellers reconvened in a subterranean cavern at New York City's Lit Lounge to take in a performance by Dear Althea, a nearly all-girl punk band, featuring lead singer and guitarist Ashley Wildes, whose daytime alter-ego is that of a mild-mannered cataloguer at Between the Covers Rare Books.

London 1949 - The Social Aspect of the Third International Conference of Antiquarian Booksellers

At the height of the festivities, our host produced an unexpected guest, even more belatedly arrived than most of us. His country of origin seemed a little uncertain, and his choice of costume, doubtless a well-meant attempt to conform with English customs - an Ascot topper, blue blazer and flannel trousers - contrasted violently with a flaming beard of patriarchal dimensions and a monocle. But he passed amicably amongst us, leaning on a malacca cane, and was observed to greet with especial cordiality Mr. Ernest Maggs, whom he addressed as "Tovarisch." What finally gave the show away was less the accent than the timbre of a voice now as familiar on the League's platform as in the rostrum at Place du Port - for it was none other than our protean President, W.S.K.

"AUTHENTICITY" - Symposium held at the Library of Congress (Rare Book and Special Collections Division) on 6th December 2013

The Library of Congress announces a symposium on "Authenticity", a program that will look at one of the most difficult subjects facing libraries, private collectors, and booksellers today - judging the genuineness of printed materials. The symposium will take place on 6th December 2013. It will not focus on theft or forgery, but rather on the research which curators, scholars, and conservators have been conducting regarding all elements of printing and book production. The program will include specialists who are at the cutting edge of research on printing techniques, paper manufacture, binding construction, and typography. They will include scholars, conservators, scientists, and booksellers who are dedicated to establishing methods for determining authenticity in the field of rare books, prints, and manuscripts.
