Lost Splendor

Past and present by an archives student and new Bostonian. @freifraufitz

From an original Mozart manuscript to centuries old physiological texts, the 2014 New York Antiquarian Book Fair was a whirlwind. Despite being rooted in the field of all things antiquarian, I stumbled across the event by complete accident. Through hundred of booths, short lived discussions with a handful of knowing collectors and vendors, and a considerable loot of catalogs and business cards - I’ll undoubtedly be returning next year for the entirety of the weekend rather than just the entirety of a late afternoon. 

More later this week on the New York Antiquarian Book Fair over on Archivalor!
