College Book Collecting Champs Announced

Scott Brown at Fine Books Blog announces the winners of the first College Book Collecting Championship, sponsored by Fine Books & Collections magazine,, PBA Galleries, Heritage Book Shop and the Grolier Club. Daniel McKee of Cornell won first prize for his collection of Educational Books of Japan's Meiji Period; William Miglore of Amherst took second for collecting Ray Bradbury; David Rando (also of Cornell) rounded out the top three with his reference books related to Finnegan's Wake.

An excellent idea by Fine Books & Collections, and congratulations to all the winners! I hope that this contest will continue to flourish, and that more colleges around the country will establish book collecting contests on their campuses.
