One of our dealers recently purchased a library of more than 3,000 volumes. The collector was a Denver native who made a name for himself in educational testing. Over the course of about 40 years, he collected books about art, science, history (particularly ancient history and history of the middle ages), Folio Society, Heritage Club, Limited Editions Club, Easton Press and Franklin Library volumes and finely bound books, many in French. We’re gradually working these books into our shelves at Printed Page. Adding to the books’ provenance is the fact that the collector willed the books to a friend. The friend had served several years in a penitentiary for killing his second wife. He appealed and was granted a new trial and was awaiting it when we bought the books from him. So how often do you have a chance to see books collected by a man of such sophisticated and wide-ranging tastes that ended up in the hands of a convicted murderer? Well?
