Book Collecting 2000 (COLLECTED BOOKS) Reviews
I just bought this book after having bought Ian Ellis's "Book Finds". I did so cautiously, since one negative review here specifically claimed the same buying "path". Not so for me. "Book Collecting 2000" is excellent for my needs and might be for you as well.
ONE OF MANY BOOKS I HAVE. GOOD TO ADD TO MY COLLECTION.
Just full of information!
One of my favorite genre of books is "Books about Books" .I have written several Reviews on such books as "The Anatomy Of Bibliomania" by Holbrook Jackson, "Collecting Books For fun And Profit" by Arthur Minters,"Literary Miscellany" by Palmer,"Book Row" by Mondlin,"The Book On The Bookshelf" by Petroski,"Every Book Its Reader" by Basbanes,"The Library At Night" by Alberto Manguel,"At Home With Books "by Ellis et all.,to name a few.So,when I came across this book.there was no hesitation on my part of wanting it.I have somewhere over 7000 books in my personal library that I have "amassed" over the approximately 25 years.I like to think of myself more as a Bibliophile or book lover than a Collerctor;but verything about books,authors and writers,Booksellers,the Publishing industry,the past and future trends of books;you name it,and if it has anything to do with books,i'm interested.
