Description:
Private Libraries Association, London, fifth impression, 1977. Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm,. xiv, 242 pp. From the blurb: "This new impression of John Carter's Taste & Technique in Book Collecting: A study of recent developments in Great Britain and the United States (the Sandars Lectures for 1947) has added to it a substantial epilogue: viz., the presidential address delivered to the Bibliographical Society in 1969, in which Mr Carter cast a reflective and not invariably respectful eye on the trends, conditions and personalities of the intervening twenty years. There are also three pages of corrections and notes, including some prepared in 1974, two years before the author's death. English reviewers of the original edition called it 'the perfect combination of formidable learning with grace and wit' (The Bookseller) 'this fascinating, witty and provocative book' (Percy H. Muir in The Clique), 'deeply informed, thoughtful, provocative and - let me add - as entertaining as… Read More

Description:
Private Libraries Association, London, 1970 enlarged reprint of 1949 second edition. Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm,. xiv, 242 pp. This is a reprint of the 1949 second edition of this classic work, expanded by the addition of a substantial epilogue: namely, the presidential address delivered to the Bibliographical Society in 1969, in which John Carter cast a reflective and not invariably respectful eye on the trends, conditions and personalities of the intervening twenty years. Carter also provides a new preface and some pages of Corrections & Notes. The volume as a whole offers a "somewhat philosophical" account of the cycles and patterns in book-collecting over the 100 years or so from about 1840, in the UK and in America, and an examination of then current methods and technique. There are interesting discussions of "Rarity" and "Condition" and a subtle and amusing analysis of the forces which determine the state of the market. Elegantly written.
