Re: “A Burlington Collection of Rare Books Is Museum Bound

This collector must be a hermit. I just can't believe she knows of nobody who collects these publishers trade bindings. What of Herbert Kleist of Boston who gave his huge collection to the Boston Public Library many decades ago. Then there were my two mentors, Charles Gullans and John Espey at UCLA that launched Margaret Amstrong and a host of other designers with three exhibitions in 1968 and 1970. I celebrated my Golden Anniversary collecting such treasures 1966 to 2016 with a slide show/talk at San Francisco's Roxburghe club. Title was "How to Judge a Book by its Cover". Then their is Richard Minsky of Hudson New York who, with moi as his principal advisor, has put together five collections of cloth bindings, published color illustrated books on them, and placed them in major American universities. Even the MET has started to collect fine examples for its Watson Library. Since I live in the Bay Area, I can hardly wait to see the collection when it gets to SF.
