Friday’s Snapshot from Special Collections ….

June 19, 2015

For the past months I have been working on a small collection of books that belonged to James Knowlson, a friend and scholar of Samuel Beckett. So while many of the items are related to his works about Beckett and perhaps for me not so interesting there are others that deserve a second look.

I am getting near the end and now looking at the smaller items. I like to do the larger tomes first and leave the thin, less interesting with those in need of repair until the end.

These very thin and in need of care are just so lovely … I don’t know the artists but adore the bindings and images ; telling of cheap early 20th production but gorgeous book design … this is why I love my job and these little gems will be protected.
