Reader's note

Do you collect antiquarian books? This 1952 edition of ABC For Book Collectors by John Carter is the book you have been waiting for! Not only is the actual language of the book collecting full of jargon and special terminology, the rules, conventions and taboos of the cult are furthermore often highly mysterious to the layman, and its technique involves many unsuspected subtleties. Here, under about 450 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, and also much salutary comment on such subjects as auctions, condition, facsimiles and fakes, "points", rarity and the like. Just one of the many antique, rare and obscure books available on our online vintage bookstore.
