You’ve Got Pirates! Edmond Hoyle’s A Short Treatise on the Game of Whist
An Illustrated Talk by David Levy

We all know the phrase “according to Hoyle” and likely grew up with a nearby edition of Hoyle’s Games. In this illustrated talk, David Levy will take us back to the beginning—the 1742 publication of Edmond Hoyle’s A Short Treatise on the Game of Whist and its troubled history. The book was quickly pirated and the owner of the copyright, bookseller Francis Cogan, took extraordinary, desperate steps to combat the pirates. Emerging from Cogan’s battle are some rare and unusual books and broadsides, and a Hoyle brand that has survived for more than 250 years. In his talk, David Levy will bring this tale to life with images of rarities from his personal collection, including piracies and works autographed by Hoyle to ensure authenticity, as well as contemporary source material: literary quotations, newspaper advertisements, business records, and a mid-eighteenth century decorative object that strangely provides bibliographical evidence of a Hoyle publication that has not otherwise survived.

David Levy is a collector and scholar of printed books about card and board games, with a focus on the writings of Edmond Hoyle. His Hoyle collection is second in scope only to that of the Bodleian Library.

The Art of American Bookcovers 1875 – 1930 with Richard Minsky
On April 22, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. in the Lownes Room of the John Hay Library, Richard Minsky will give a talk, “The Art of American Bookcovers 1875 – 1930: One Hundred Great Covers from the Brown University Library.” Minsky will look at selections of books from the Library’s holdings that exemplify book cover styles and their changes during this time period. A Q&A, book sale and signing, and reception will follow the talk. This event is free and open to the public.

In his presentation, Minsky will discuss how Modernism entered the American home on book covers. Proto-Constructivism and Futurism came in 1880, Art Nouveau in 1881. Surrealism and Abstraction in 1904. This period saw the transition from covers designed by die-engravers to those created by visual artists, many of whom were women. The presentation will include stunning examples from Eastlake style, Arts and Crafts, Aesthetic movement, Poster style and Social Realism.

Richard Minsky is an internationally known book artist, author, historian, curator, and bibliographer. Minsky is the author of American Decorated Publishers’ Bindings 1872-1929, The Art of American Book Covers 1875-1930, The Art of the American Book, The Golden Age of American Book Design, The Book Cover Art of Thomas Watson Ball, and American Trade Bindings with Native American Themes, 1875-1933. In 1974 he founded the Center for Book Arts in New York City, the first organization of its kind.

International Rare Book & Autograph Fair 2015
In June 1984, the Syndicat national de la Librairie Ancienne et Moderne (SLAM), on the initiative of its President Jeanne Laffitte, organised the first International Antiquarian Book Fair in Paris, at the Conciergerie. In this historic location (once prison to Marie-Antoinette), the success was considerable, and every two years, booksellers from around the world began to make Paris a regular destination to exhibit a wide range of precious works.

In 1993, the Fair moved to the Maison de la Mutualité and in 1995 it became an annual event.

Since April 2007, the glass-domed Grand Palais has been host to the Antiquarian Book Fair in conjunction with the Original Print Fair.
This event is one of the most prestigious fairs of its kind in the world with over one hundred and fifty national and international exhibitors, all of whom are members of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, as well as fifty fine print dealers.

This exceptional cultural event is a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the treasures of our written heritage presented by leading professionals.

Visitors can meander along the traces of journeys taken by countless human minds over the course of centuries. From manuscripts to avant-garde, from a letter by François I to the drafts of Marcel Proust, from a XIIIth century psalm book to a futurist manifesto, amateurs will be able to browse the shelves of an immense bookshop, with thousands of stunningly diverse documents.
