The "Keepsake" I have been working on for the Grand Conclave III is
now finished. I set the official publication date to coincide with the
opening day of the Conclave, but the book will be ready long before that.
It is now in the hands of the binder, but hand sewing and binding does
take time. It should be finished early in July and I hope you will find it of
value and to your liking.
Unfortunately, it costs too much for me to give away. It is printed
in a limited edition of 500 numbered copies. The size of the book is 8-1/2"
X 5-1/2". It has marbled acid-free endpapers, (which added a cost of .75
per copy, but is well worth it) and will be bound in a square hardback case,
gold stamped with title on the cover. It has over 450 entries, and provision
for the reader to add even more. Enclosed is an announcement and order
form with provision for a pre-publication discount to M.B.S. members that
will bring the price down to very little above the actual cost of the printing,
binding and incidental expenses.
There is nothing this issue from Seekers & Sellers. However, in a
short while we will be able to make our own selections at the Miniature
Book Fair and Auction in Burbank over Labor Day Week-end. Incidentally,
I wonder if you all are aware of the fact that Mr. Louis Bondy, probably
the world's greatest authority on Miniature Books will be at the Conclave
and will deliver the keynote address. We will also have other notables
with us, including Mrs. Irene Winterstein of Zurich, Switzerland whose
collection of miniature books is internationally well known and Mr. Ian
Macdonald who will be in the United States on a study tour, having been
the recipient of a Winston Churchill Grant for that purpose. I do not know
if Dr. Znidersic will or will not attend.
The 2 volume Bibliography of the miniature books at the
International Book Fair held in Ljubljana, Yugoslavia in 1983 have finally
been sent to those who contributed books to the Exhibition. Dr. Znidersic
also writes that he has quite a list of foreign miniatures for sale or trade.
You can contact him directly if interested. His letter also included a list of
names of over 70 M.B.S. members who are also members of the
International Miniature Book Society. I have no idea, however, how many
non-U.S. members they have.
Here’s what’s next.
