The fifth issue of the Journal of the Long Island Book Collectors was, once
again, written and edited by its collector-members. The Journal is illustrated
by children's book illustrator Lili Cassel Wronker. She has also contributed
an article about becoming an illustrator and collector of children's books.
This issue also includes a bibliography of her published illustrations. The
co-editors are Carol Meyerson and Evert Volkersz.

Paulette Greene opens with a reminiscence on the founding of the LIBC 25
years ago, followed by Helen Hurewitz's appreciation of Herman Abromson, the
Christopher Morley collector and LIBC's founder and guiding spirit for many
years. Howell J. Heaney memorializes Frederick R. Gardner, a foremost
collector of children's books.

A group of general articles about books and collecting begins with
contributions by Annette Rosenstiel and Alexander Lurkis. Norman Jung, a major
collector of Chicagoana, relives some of his experiences with booksellers at
book fairs, and Rudolf Hertz tells about collecting early imprints. David
King, an avid collector of Rolls-Royce literature, argues his case for a
bibliography of rejected titles, and Roslyn Grand recounts her love of books
in Jewish literature. This section includes several poems by Gerard Previn

"Hats Off to Capp," Mike Marrell's tribute to Al Capp, leads off a series
of articles on collecting illustrated books. Murray Robin writes about books
illustrated and autographed by the artist. Alida Roochvarg tells of her long
interest in collecting posters, followed by Hank Salerno's account of
collecting "his" incunabula--early writings on Japanese woodblock prints.

Travel guides of the 19th century are discussed by Werner Elias, starting a
group of articles on author and subject collecting. David Galerstein pursues
Sherlockian collecting interests, Max Kleinman describes his Winston Churchill
collection, and Carol Meyerson writes about collecting the works of John
Hersey. Fan Parker shares some of the difficulties facing the Nabokov
collector, while Lee Temares lists the earliest Limited Editions Club
ephemera. Evert Volkersz describes Thomas Coryate's early solo walk.
