Beschreibung

Laminated wrappers, 8vo, 18 cm, 80 pp, ills, plates. From the blurb: "Although a lot of people buy a great many books in their lives, they rarely consider themselves as book-collectors, believing that book collecting is a pursuit of a wealthy few who accumulate vast libraries of rare and precious volumes. This book sets out to show that on the contrary, there are few pastimes as fascinating, enjoyable and rewarding for the enthusiast of modest means as collecting books. It explains plainly the often obscure terminology used in describing books, elucidating such perplexing terms as 'foxed' 'unopened', 'unsophisticated', 'disbound' explaining where to find the 'title', the 'fly-leaf and the colophon', as well as showing the collector how to detect a 'first edition', distinguish between 'original boards' and 'contemporary tree-calf' and collate his books to check for completeness. A concise history of printing in the West, with particular reference to printing in England from Caxton to Morris, is followed by a list of suggested subjects for the collector with limited funds, and a useful checklist for further study." Good. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-08619
