Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Fishers of Books, Vol. 1 Always are the beginnings of a book collector modest and vague; save in the case of an Occasional Croesus or one of those restless mortals who suddenly emerge from an adventure in a bull market with a mass of winnings and not the ghost of an idea as to what to do with them. Croesus and the lucky gamblers have crowded the little collector to the wall during the past decade and raised a small group of shrewd dealers to the place of magnates of big business. Nor is this condition likely to change, notwithstanding a recurring seismic crack in all the Stock exchanges round about the world. For Croesus buys with a magnificent gesture that forever prohibits him from becoming a seller; he buys with the objective of endowing a college or erecting a foun dation a sure way to immortality. It is a great boon to the small collector when he does this, provided the small collector has any considerable number of the books that are forever withdrawn from the market when Croesus shuts them away from the world in his opulent and, almost invariably, cold and repellent foundation. On the other hand, Croesus, as long as he collects, has been a sore trial to the little fellow. Dealers all over the world have used his name as a bogy to scare the puny collector into paying extravagant prices.
