eCatalogues: the transition continues

318f91f4-ab1c-48e9-8179-7c0372c60373

As the economics of rare book catalogues continues to decline many dealers have shifted from printed paper to electronic eCatalogues.  Here is a snapshot of the most recent fifty catalogues we have received.  They all deserve support.

 

In the trade the time-honored process of issuing printed catalogues has lost some of its appeal as the web has created new ways to reach buyers while undermining other aspects of the selling process.  In this transition period eCatalogues are finding a place in the selling mix.

 

Here is a link to the eCatalogue Section of Rare Book Monthly.
