ATG Quirkies: A Real Book of Fakes

by | Apr 24, 2019 | 0 comments

If you’re fascinated by the world of literary forgeries and hoaxes here’s a post that might pique your interest.

It’s from the Philobiblos blog and it discusses a couple of “companion” titles that we think you may find intriguing:

  • Arthur Freeman, Bibliotheca Fictiva: A Collection of Books & Manuscripts Relating to Literary Forgery, 400 BC–AD 2000London: Bernard Quaritch Ltd, 2014.
  • Earle Havens, ed. Fakes, Lies, and Forgeries: Rare Books and Manuscripts from the Arthur and Janet Freeman Bibliotheca Fictiva Collection. Baltimore: Sheridan Libraries, Johns Hopkins University, 2014.

(Although, one of them may be outside your price range.)

Thanks, as always, to John Riley of Gabriel Books for providing ATG Quirkies
