Her theme will be no less than that of the books that made the modern world.

The seminars are aimed at a broad audience including book-collectors, book-dealers, historians of all kinds, librarians, indeed at anyone with an interest in collecting any sort of text from the sixth-former to the retired professor.

Nebuchadnezzar II Babylonian Cuneiform Cylinder

The clay cylinder describes the rebuilding of the temple of Shamash in Sippar (modern Tell Abu Habbah in Iraq) by Nebuchadnezzar II and dates to the Neo-Babylonian Period, circa 604-562 BC.

Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II was responsible for the destruction of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem and the Babylonian exile of the Jews, as well as the construction in Babylon of the monumental Ishtar Gate and the legendary Hanging Gardens.

At 8 1/4 inches (20.8 cm) in length, the cylinder is the largest example to come to market in recent times and is estimated at $300,000-500,000. In 1953, it was sold through Dawson’s of Los Angeles.

2013-2014 The Book History Colloquium at Columbia University: Lise Jaillant
Lise Jaillant, Lecturer, Newcastle University

Shucks, we’ve got glamour girls too! Gertrude Stein, Bennett Cerf and the Making of a Modernist Star

Gertrude Stein’s celebrity in America has often been discussed in relation to The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, the bestseller published by Alfred Harcourt in 1933. This talk will argue that Stein’s enduring fame was largely due to Bennett Cerf (the co-founder of Random House), not to Harcourt. Cerf, who later became a celebrity himself, made fun of his own author during interviews and wrote satirical blurbs and press releases about her. Drawing on a wide range of media (print, radio, film), this innovative marketing strategy allowed Stein to become a genuine modernist star.
Lise Jaillant is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Twentieth-Century Literature at Newcastle University, UK. Her research focuses on British and American publishers and their impact on the literary canon. She has articles published or forthcoming in journals such as Book History, Clio, James Joyce Quarterly and Studies in the Novel. Her first monograph, Modernism, Middlebrow and the Canon in the Modern Library Series, 1917-1955, will be published in Pickering & Chatto’s s new series “Literary Texts and the Popular Marketplace.” Her research was based on extensive archival work in the Random House archive and Bennett Cerf papers at Columbia University Rare Book & Manuscript Library.

2013-2014 The Book History Colloquium at Columbia University: Paul Shaw
The Book History Colloquium at Columbia University, open to any discipline, aims to provide a broad outlet for the scholarly discussion of book history, print culture, the book arts, and bibliographical research, and (ideally) the promotion of research and publication in these fields. Our presenters include Columbia faculty members and advanced graduate students, and scholars of national prominence from a range of institutions.

The Book Jackets of Philip Grushkin: A Look at the Design Process in the Pre-Digital Era From the early 1940s through the late 1950s

Philip Grushkin was one of the leading freelance book jacket designers in New York, working for a wide range of publishers. He worked on jackets for a number of well-known authors, among them Simone de Beauvoir, Arthur Koestler, Truman Capote, Junichiro Tanizaki, Jean Stafford and Chester Himes. A student of George Salter at The Cooper Union, Grushkin’s jackets, often reflect his mentor’s approach, yet have their own distinctive style. The Philip Grushkin Archives at Columbia University contain a large number of these jackets. But more importantly, they are especially valuable for the presence of mechanicals, roughs and comps alongside printed jackets. In combination, these materials provide a vivid look at how Grushkin designed his bookjackets. His process and methods were not unique and thus they illuminate graphic design in the age before personal computers.

Paul Shaw is a lettering artist and graphic design historian. He teaches typography and calligraphy at Parsons School of Design and the history of graphic design at the School of Visual Arts. In 1980 he organized the George Salter Archives at the Newberry Library and recently he wrote the text of the catalogue for the Philip Grushkin Archives. Along with writing, teaching and designing Paul is the editor of Codex: The Journal of Letterforms.

The upcoming auction on 29 April features an extremely handsome single-sheet world map, from a collection of rare cartes à figures, or "panelled maps." Considered one of the finest products of the Amsterdam map-making industry, the successful combination of geographical accuracy and artistic expression makes these maps highly collectable examples of the mapmaker's art. Another sale highlight is an extremely rare and long 13-plate panorama of Shanghai Bund from circa 1873 and attributed to Cammidge, together with 25 photographic views of the region.
