About This Item

Oak Knoll Press, New Castle / The British Library, London:. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. Ninth edition, completely revised and re-set, with additional information and illustrated with line drawings and color photographs. Shaken, Unsophisticated, Harleian Style, Fingerprint, E-book, Dentelle. Can you define these terms? If not, this is the book for you! John Carter's ABC for Book Collectors has long been established as the most enjoyable as well as the most informative reference book on the subject. Here, in over 700 alphabetical entries, ranging in length from a single line to several pages, may be found definition and analysis of the technical terms of book collecting and bibliography, interspersed with salutary comment on such subjects as auctions, condition, facsimiles and fakes, "points", rarity, etc. This ninth edition has been thoroughly revised and re-edited by Nicolas Barker, former Editor of The Book Collector, and Simran Thadani, Executive Director of Letterform Archive. With a new Introduction, it incorporates new terms, additions and amendments and, for the first time, illustrations in black & white and color. Nicolas Barker worked with his friend John Carter revising the ABC up to the latter's death in 1975 and has faithfully preserved the spirit of the original. ABC for Book Collectors, while keeping us up-to-date with modern terminology, retains its humorous character and importance as the one indispensable guide to book collecting. ISBN: 1584561122.
