The experience and expertise of the booksellers listed below speaks for itself. All are volunteering their time as prospective mentors for newer entries in the antiquarian and rare book trade.
Below you will find a list of all participating mentors. Detailed descriptions for each mentor can be found under each country.
Each bookseller has described their business and background, written in the languages offered by the mentor.
We encourage those seeking a mentor to look at all the mentors to find who might be best suited to you. This is a world mentoring scheme and prospective participants who wish to do so are invited to choose a mentor from outside their geographic area. With the use of Internet, communications are now so inexpensive or even free, that there is no reason not to share knowledge across cultures and countries.
Newer booksellers reading this page are encouraged to participate by enquiring about the availability of mentors on this list.
Please contact the ILAB Mentoring Programme Coordinators via: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Veteran booksellers are encouraged to pass news of the programme along to more recent arrivals in the trade.
With thanks to our colleagues, and best wishes for a prosperous New Year!
