Nearly 30 years ago, Jake Chernofsky (Editor of AB Bookman's Weekly) and
others established a week-long seminar in Denver aimed at providing
education for persons interested in entering the used / OP / academic / rare
book trade. Under various administrative configurations, the Seminar, long
well-known and highly respected in the rare book community, has continued to
fulfill this function to this day. Given the enormous changes in the
antiquarian book world since 1978, the curriculum has changed accordingly,
with increasing emphasis on the realities of bookselling in the electronic
age. Over the years more than 2100 students have graduated from the Seminar,
many of whom have gone on to become prominent members of the bookselling

This year the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA),
Alibris, the Rocky Mountain Antiquarian Booksellers' Association (RMABA),
the Independent Online Booksellers' Association (IOBA), and Abe Books will
offer a total of ten scholarships for the Seminar. Applications should be
sent to each respective organization by June 30, 2008. Details will be
available at the Seminar website shortly.

Please take a look at the Seminar's web site and help publicize its
existence wherever you can, especially to those who are unlikely to be
current subscribers to the bibliographical bulletin boards or who are
otherwise unlikely to be connected to the American old book scene. The
Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar performs an essential service to
bibliographical pedagogy, and it deserves our collective support.
