viii, 202 pp. 8vo. 'The dynamic-duo of New York's antiquarian book scene have written a unique and interesting series of essays on the creation of new fields of book collecting. With hard-won authority the authors share with their readers their extraordinary careers that span more than fifty years. Rostenberg & Stern were pioneers in cultivating interests in such diverse fields as Feminism, Judaica, Black Culture and Utopia. We empathize with the wonder and excitement of the authors as countless rare and beautiful books pass through their hands. We learn the byzantine and unspoken "rules of the game" of the rare book trade, and how - in the mid-1940s - two young Jewish girls broke into the male-dominated field of antiquarian book selling by specializing in new and uncharted fields.'
