Extra Links

- C18-L has released Selected Readings 97, a selective bibliography of recent works on the long eighteenth century. The list is particularly (and blessedly) strong in biblio-things, so I encourage you to read through at least that section (I've taken down a whole bunch of the citations which I look forward to enjoying at the earliest opportunity).

- A new issue of The Bonefolder is now available here - useful articles on bookbinding and book-artistry.

- Tulane University recently posted an update on the state of post-Katrina recovery at their Howard-Tilton Memorial Library.

- The Open Content Alliance is seeking an Executive Director. [h/t Dan Cohen]

- More than 1,000 Passover haggadahs from the collections of the Chabad-Lubavitch Library in New York are now available online, according to a press release. [h/t RBN]

- Travis has the latest Lester Weber update. Sometimes I have a hard time believing this case is for real, but I guess truth really is stranger than fiction.

- David McCullough and "John Adams" director Tom Hooper were on NPR for a 40-minute interview this week.

- Michael Lieberman has an essay on technology in the book trade. Worth reading, and on target.

- Rare Book Review reports "
A mid-15th century Book of Hours set a Dutch record when it sold for €316.051 (estimate €40.000-80.000) at a Van Gendt Book Auctions in the Netherlands."

- From BibliOdyssey, images from the Chronicles of Saxony (1492).
