About this Item

12 x 9 inches. cloth. 183, [1] pages. Curated by Eric J. Holzenberg and Arthur L. Schwarz. Catalogue compiled and edited by George Ong. 12 x 9; 183, [1] p.; numerous color and duotone illustrations; Aldus and Michelangelo types designed by Hermann Zapf; 1000 copies. Designed by Jerry Kelly. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Grolier Club December 9, 2015 through February 6, 2016. Behind every great collection lies a great story. That was the premise of the first Grolier Club Collects show in 2002/2003, and a dozen years later it remains the central idea of "The Grolier Club Collects II," a gathering of books, manuscripts and works on paper drawn from the international membership of the Grolier Club. Reflecting the breadth and quality of those members' varied collecting interests, the exhibition encompasses medieval manuscripts and early printed books as well as contemporary literature; rarities ranging from Old Master drawings and prints, to nineteenth- and twentieth-century posters, cartoons and ephemera to livres d'artiste, children's books, book objects, and photographs. Each object comes with a tale, written by the collector, describing how and when the book, manuscript, or print was acquired, under what circumstances, how it fits (or does NOT fit) into an overall collecting scheme and-most importantly-why it is precious to the collector. These unique objects illuminate the remarkable range of subjects pursued by bibliophiles on an international stage and provide proof that the collecting of books and prints in the age of the internet is not only alive and well, but thriving.
