Title:The state of the rare book market today
Author(s):Parker, John
Subject(s):Rare book market
Abstract:I hope that no one will read a defensive tone into these remarks, for the rare book librarian is at first startled at the thought of bringing a discussion of the rare book trade into a symposium on "the practical operations of libraries in [acquisitions] functions." We have become weary in the struggle to establish our belief that rare books are a fit subject for discussion among other "practical" aspects of librarianship. I happily substitute gratitude for defensiveness, noting that rare bookmen here are accepted as practical librarians, interested in and capable of discussing the broader aspects of building library collections.
