Preface by Sebastian Carter. Author, bookseller, and bibliographer, John Carter's writings touched the book trade in many ways. His co-authoring with Graham Pollard of An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets brought to light the forgeries of T. J. Wise. His contributions to many book collecting periodicals and scholarly journals demonstrated his knowledge and sly humor. Two of his publications, Taste and Technique in Book Collecting and ABC for Book Collectors are cornerstone reference books for any collection no matter the subject. Illustrated. As new.
