[BKARTS] Publishers' Bindings on eBay



I've started placing duplicates from my collection on eBay.

The exhibition, American Decorated Publishers' Bindings 1872-1929, is still
up in the gallery in Husdon, NY if you'd like to see it. It has changed
quite a bit since it first opened, with over 100 new acquisitions. If you
haven't seen the online exhibition, it's at
http://minsky.com/gallery.htm

An early (incomplete) version of the checklist is also online at
http://minsky.com/pub-dec-other.htm
with instructions on how to subscribe to the forthcoming catalog (2006),
which is being issued in three versions, with pre-publication subscription
discounts. Subscribers have access to the complete updated checklist, which
now has over 200 images on it, and to the in-progress drafts of the catalog
essays.

Subscribers were also notified of the eBay listings three days ago, when
they first were posted. Only three of the books with "Buy it Now" option
remain as of this writing, but there are others with regular auctions only
that still have four days to go.  Of particular interest are a gorgeous
Decorative Designers cover for Lewis Morris, _The Epic of Hades_:

and Will Bradley's important cover design for Edmund Gosse, _In Russet and
Silver_ on a copy with uncut foredge folds..
