Description:
London: Studio Vista. Very Good/Good. 1971. Hard Cover. 4to 0289701252 Dust jacket unclipped, closed tears, a little loss. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine, a little rubbed to edges. No ownership marks. Numerous colour annd b/w illustrations. 144 pages clean and tight. Product Dimensions: 30 x 22.4 x 2.8 cm. This is the first general work to be published which considers the entire history of English literature from the viewpoint of the book-collector, which is all the more surprising in that, although many homes do not possess antiques or objets d'art, almost every one contains books. People are becoming more aware of the interest and profit to be gained from old books, and the author has received a great number of inquiries from people who have discovered or rediscovered boxes of old volumes in their attics. The major auction houses regularly present book sales, and prices have risen dramatically; yet it is still possible for the poorest amateur to build a… Read More

Description:
Studio Vista, London, first edition, 1971. Cloth, large 8vo,. 144 pp, colour plates, ills. From the blurb: "This is the first general work to be published which considers the entire history of English literature from the viewpoint of the book-collector.. The major auction houses regularly present book sales, and prices have risen dramatically; yet it is still possible for the poorest amateur to build a satisfying library at a modest cost. For the benefit of collectors and would-be collectors, Eric Quayle describes the points to look for and the pitfalls to beware, covering every area of this absorbing pursuit. Beginning with the earliest printed books, he discusses novels and romances, poetry, drama, science and medicine, travel, natural history, early children's books, detective fiction and a miscellany of specialised fields - old bibles, books on sport and cookery, and erotica. There is a chapter on binding, and a comprehensive glossary of technical terms. In some 20 years, the author… Read More
