      Here be beautiful books and especially old books. There are friendly old copies of books with other people's names and bookplates in them. There are wondrous works that can be dusted off and put to use. 

     If you like the feel of old paper, antique print and long forgotten bindings then they are for you. From austere works of the Pennsylvania Quakers to florid Renaissance style portrayals, there are autographs of Kings, princes and presidents by the dozens passing through this catalogue.  From Demons to Defoe, from Hippopotamuses to Hogs, From Bibliographies to Biographies, they are all laid out for your delectation in hundreds of categories.

     Travel the arcane byways of literature of the last 7 centuries and the glittering gems of Modern works at your own risk. It can be very addicting.

         Here is the greatest resource for librarians, book collectors and dealers. Colorado Book School. An intensive [and we do mean intensive], 5 day course with a dozen friendly and helpful staff, great food, parties and, most of all, bone crushing work. Figure on 5 hours sleep a night.

"Like all men of the Library, in my younger days I traveled; I have journeyed in quest of a book, perhaps a catalog of catalogs. Now that my eyes can hardly make out what I myself have written, I am preparing to die, a few leagues from the hexagon where i was born. When I am dead, compassionate hands will throw me over the railing; my tomb will be unfathomable air, my body will sink for ages, and I will decay and dissolve in the wind engendered by my fall, which shall be infinite. I declare that the library is endless." JORGE LUIS BORGES (Eminent South American Author) (1899-1986) "The Library of Babel"

BOOK COLLECTING

Almost from time immemorial book collecting, and before that manuscript collecting, and before that anything that you could scratch or carve a message on, has been the subject of much interest. Today we have many categories of book collecting- Fancy bindings, Religious books, Philosophy books, Mystery books, Modern 1st editions, Leather bound books, Textbooks, Early readers, Archaeology books, Art books, Children's books and numberless others. You need not break the bank on 15th and 16th century works. There are some areas that are not yet popular and have a lot of growing to do. Alice in Wonderland with it's endless editions and artists is a fertile field for study as is Disney and Pinocchio. Religious books are now enjoying a greatly increased following. Early readers have a ways to go in appreciation yet. Poetry works may be on the decline a bit though still holding firm. Areas that appear unexploited at this time are Salesman's Dummy books. These are typically turn of the century or early 20th century works comprising highlights of several books. They were designed for salesmen to take orders with. These frequently included covers, spines, limited amounts of text and a good supply of illustrations from each featured book all bound together. Currently these are cheap out of all proportion to their scarcity. Search and you shall find in the land where the Princes of Serendip reign. ARC's (Advance review Copies) are also scarce relative to their key role in publication. These usually contain uncorrected proofs of the book to be issued, often along with author's signatures. They usually sell, even signed, at a considerable discount to the First Edition work which actually came later. Local Cookbooks such as published for church groups, clubs, etc. are now very low priced. You have to have a game plan here or risk being overwhelmed by the mass of cheap material now out there. Beeton's 1907 magazine, arguably the most highly valued magazine is popular for pritning "A Study in Scarlet", Sherlock Holmes first appearance in print. This sold in 1929 for a few shillings, about 1974 it achieved 80L at auction. A couple of years ago it exeeded $150,000 when sold at auction. Early magazines with their appearances of Edgar Alan Poe, Frank Baum, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Maxfield Parrish, Winslow Homer and the Wyeths among hundreds of coveted authors and artists in print are a fertile field. The best children's collection assembled was put together by a poorly paid school teacher in the the years when Children's books were not considered suitable for serious collectors. Today that collection resides at Yale to world acclaim. There is such a large world out there. Pick your specialty, buy quality, and your search will be a happy one and your rewards many.
