Dear Fellow Booksellers,
The Out-of-Print & Antiquarian Book Market Seminar—the intensive one-week program for booksellers and collectors at all levels of experience—is accepting registrants for this year’s session, which will be held August 3 through 8 at Colorado College in beautiful Colorado Springs. Now in its 25th year, the seminar has graduated more than 2,000 participants, many of whom have become prominent figures in the antiquarian book world.
Graduates have described the seminar experience as one of the most important professional career steps they could have taken. The curriculum has been constantly updated to reflect the important changes that have taken place in the antiquarian and out-of-print world in the past decade.
An all-star faculty with a combined experience of many years in all phases of book selling will preside over sessions covering such topics as pricing and description of antiquarian books and manuscripts, the auction process, Internet book selling, book scouting, ethics of the book trade, book repairs and restoration, operating a used book store, book fairs, the economics of the book trade, and more. This year’s keynote speaker will be Daniel De Simone, Curator for the Lessing J. Rosenwald Collection of the Library of Congress. With over 25 years in the book trade he has significant experience in building rare book collections for private collectors and libraries.
For more information, please contact Kathy Lindeman, Coordinator, at (719) 473-6634, or visit the seminar’s web site at http://www.bookseminars.com where on-line applications can be quickly completed. Don’t be shut out—-enrollment is limited to ensure a strong faculty to student ratio.
