Description: From Library Journal
Neither a biography nor an institutional history, this readable book instead recounts the story of an extraordinary collector, his collecting passion, and the bookdealers who abetted him. Dickinson, a University of Arizona library science professor, details Huntington's collecting interests and methods, his relationships with dealers, especially George D. Smith and A.S.W. Rosenbach, and the staggering sums of money he spent, offering an intriguing glimpse of the upper end of the rare book trade in early-20th-century New York. Huntington's major auction purchases and his block purchases of important libraries are listed in an appendix. Recommended for rare book and library history collections.?Elizabeth Brice, Miami Univ.
