Beschreibung:

Edition of 1700 copies, of which 950 were for sale. Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, 313 pp, ills. From the blurb: "Anthony Rota, dealer in antiquarian books and first editions for over half a century, talks of the private collectors and university libraries whose collections he has helped to enrich over these years, remembering his colleagues in the firm and in the trade generally. His early training under Bertram Rota, and the history of the firm since the latter's early death, are followed by telling commentaries on virtually all aspects of the trade, including runners, auctions (and auction rings), and the problems of buying privately or in competition. As past president of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association, and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (of which he is now President of Honour), these lightly written memoirs, may be read as a guide to collectors and dealers alike, or, more simply, for the sheer pleasure of their reading." Very Good in slightly faded dustwrapper which is a trifle rubbed. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

From the publisher's advertisement: "There are pen-portraits of great collectors such as George Lazarus (D.H. Lawrence) and Harry Cahn (Winston Churchill), and of booksellers Ben Marks, Mark Cohen and Frank Doel (all of 84 Charing Cross Road), G.F. Sims, Gilbert Fabes, Anton Zwemmer, Laurie Deval, who was Percy Muir's partner at Elkin Mathews, Boris Harding-Edgar (Charles Rare Books), Anthony Newnham, who was Anthony's tutor at Bertram Rota Ltd, David Magee, Marguerite Cohn (House of Books), Frances Steloff (Gotham Book Mart), Mike Papantonio (Seven Gables), Lew Feldman (House of El Dieff), and not forgetting Jake Schwartz. There are tales of some of the great builders of collections in the library world, notably Harry Ransom of the University of Texas at Austin, John Gordan of the Berg Collection at New York Public Library, Will Ready, Gordon Ray and, from his days at the Bridwell Library, Decherd Turner. There are tales too of the buying of large libraries and archives (such as the manuscripts of H.G. Wells, the papers of the author and publisher John Rodker, and, in the case of Hilaire Belloc, both the library and the archive)." Very Good in slightly marked dustwrapper. Artikel-Nr. ABE-41392
