Congratulations to Tom Congalton, New ILAB President!

IOBA member Tom Congalton (Between the Covers) has been elected President of ILAB, the International Association of Antiquarian Bookdealers. Outgoing President Arnoud Gerits recognized him with these words: “Tom Congalton, over a long period of time, has shown his great commitment to the League and his concise, short but always accurate comments on various topics, his impartial but clever and clear judgements, and his capacity to quickly see and understand the essence of a problem, make him the perfect new President of ILAB. He has been a wonderful Vice-President and I owe him a lot of thanks for his unfailing commitment, support and intelligent contributions to our discussions. To continue the metaphor coined by Adrian Harrington in 2010: the Ship of ILAB is safe in the good hands of Tom.”
