The Book Business - Badger Books Catalogue

About this catalogue

Welcome to our new catalogue of books about books. More accurately, books about the individuals who buy and sell them, about the institutions and individuals who collect them, a nod to those who like to organise them into authoritative lists, unpick jargon and fix prices for them; the shops where these parties would gather; records of exchanges, encounters and disputes between the parties; with an emphasis on those members who have been able and willing to report details of their book searching; those who have produced books and catalogues privately, the former often by hand press; others who have concentrated on the look of the books; and, below the surface, the sometimes unsettling psychology of the members of these groups.
