2017 NCBCC

Some old news to share: I won second prize in the 2017 National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest.

The award ceremony was held back in October at the Library of Congress, the same day I was to be in Lyon, France, for the “Thoreau from across the Pond” international symposium at the École Normale Supérieure. Though I could not accept the prize in person, I am very grateful to the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America (ABAA), the Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies (FABS), the Grolier Club, and the Center for the Book and the Rare Books and Special Collections Division of the Library of Congress, as well as the Jay I. Kislak Foundation for sponsoring this competition.
