New Castle / The British Library, London 2006 Hardcover First Edition. 384 pages. Hardcover. Brand new book. BOOKS ON BOOKS. Twenty contributors describe and explain the ways in
which booksellers acquired their stock and sold books to customers, bringing to life the personalities in this most individualistic of trades, and offer many insights into changes in taste and fashion in book collecting, during what was also a formative period for many of the world's most important research libraries, especially in North America. Bibliographical scholars write alongside well-known experts from the book trade itself, drawing on a wide rang of sources, including unpublished archives, marked sets of catalogues, and the memoirs (published and unpublished) of members of the antiquarian book trade itself. (Key Words: Giles Mandelbrote, Books on Books, Book Trade, Secondhand Books, Bookshops, Great Britain, Antiquarian Books).
