Here's a last roundup of bookish things for 2018:
- A trove of books and other works will actually enter the public domain on 1 January(!). See the Center for the Public Domain's post, Alexandra Alter's NYT piece, as well as the Public Domain Review's "Class of 2019."
- Penn Libraries have acquired the Geoffrey Day collection of Sterneiana. Rebecca Rego Barry has a bit more on why bibliophiles love Tristram Shandy, too.
- Over on the APHA blog, a recap of one of the panel discussions at their conference this fall, on reconsidering the definitions of "watermark" and "paper."
- Just a couple "year in review" posts: Peter Steinberg recaps his Year of Plath, and Sarah Werner writes about her year in "reading when you are crumbling."
- Beth Jarret from AAS is highlighted in the FB&C "Bright Young Librarians" series.
- Victorian Fairy Tales, edited by Michael Newton; review by Michael Dirda in the WaPo.
Quiet on the auction front this week.
Happy New Year, all!
