Ken Gloss,a rare book specialist and appraiser who is frequently seen on national TV, will talk in part about the history of his historic bookshop, which goes back to circa 1825. He is a second-generation owner. Ken will discuss growing up in the book business, show some of his favorite finds while enjoying “the thrill of the hunt,” and explain how he appraises books and manuscripts. He has many fascinating anecdotes to share about private and institutional collecting as well as guidelines for building and maintaining a significant collection. There will be a Q&A session at the conclusion of his talk and Ken will give some free verbal appraisals of books participants have on hand.
