Think you know a lot about books and book collecting? Would you like to
test your expertise against fellow collectors from around the world?
Visitors to the Virtual Celebration of the Book hosted by ILAB at
www.ilab.org can not only test their book knowledge but also compete for
prizes while doing it during the Biblio Quiz that will take place on each
day of the Celebration. See the web site for more details.
The four day event will include a virtual auction running until May 22 to
benefit UNICEF, a non-profit organization helping children in need around
the world; a virtual book fair running until 10:00 p.m. May 22nd; a "Biblio
Quiz" where entrants can win prizes by testing their book knowledge, and
live appraisals on Saturday, May 22nd. ILAB will also launch new features
on its website, including educational resources for book collectors and
highlighting its powerful new search engine which searches a database of
over 3 million books, maps, prints and autographs from nearly 2000
booksellers from all over the world.
The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), an organization
of national associations of antiquarian booksellers around the world,
speaks for twenty nations and nearly two thousand leading booksellers bound
by a code of ethics to promote the integrity and professionalism of the
antiquarian book trade worldwide.
