Principles Of Bibliographical Description

Principles Of Bibliographical Description

by Fredson Bowers

From the text: "The craze for first impressions of first editions, and first issues of first impressions of first editions, and first states of first impressions of first editions, has occasionally resulted in speculation and bibliographical absurdity among collectors and dealers.... Any minor change made in the course of the original printing is immediately seized on as constituting an 'issue.' A trial binding used for perhaps twenty copies of salesmen's samples becomes a rare 'first issue.'"

How To Read a Book

How To Read a Book

by Charles Lincoln Van Doren Mortimer J Adler

How to Read a Book was first written in 1940 by Mortimer Adler. He co-authored a heavily revised edition in 1972 with Charles Van Doren, which gives guidelines for critically reading good and great books of any tradition, but refrains from recommending any book outside the Western tradition; the 1972 revision, in addition to the first edition, treats genres, inspectional and syntopical reading.
