Basbanes, Nicholas A.
Among the Gently Mad: Strategies and Perspectives for the Book Hunter in the 21st Century (A John Macrae/owl Book)

Imprint: New York, John McRae. Owl Books, 2003
Edition: 1st Pbk Edition
Binding: Softback

"Sharing the superb insight he has gathered from booksellers over the years, Nicholas Basbanes offers a refresher course on the fundamentals that endure, while questioning certain practices of doubtful validity. Topics include how to determine if a book is a first edition, how to spot book club editions, the importance of dust jackets, scouting the flea markets, how to work the book fairs, and the importance of handling the goods, as well as discussing less tangible issues like spotting trends and having a focus. Then he takes a long look at the pros and cons of Internet buying, illuminating how you can use these electronic tools to your advantage and making this the book no modern collector will want to be without."250p. bibliography, index.

Basbanes, Nicholas A.
A GENTLE MADNESS: BIBLIOPHILES, BIBLIOMANES, AND THE ETERNAL PASSION FOR BO OKS

Imprint: Holt Paperbacks, 1999
Binding: Paperback

A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: What a delightful book about books and people who love books! As a second generation bibliophile, a possible bibliomane who had several people move out of my house a year ago because they erroneously believed that my books were taking over the household, and a devout employee of "Earth's Biggest Bookstore," I can vouch that Basbanes accurately describes the glorious role of book collectors as archivists of human knowledge, and -- in continual counterpoint -- sometimes pathologically obsessed book junkies., Near Fine
