Ever ask yourself to whom, or what, those booksellers refer with such citations as Wing...  Sabin...  Ahouse...  Gimbel...  Eckel... Wilkins...  American Imprints...  Adams....  FPAA...  Bolton....  TRANSMISSIPPI WEST... DNB...  DSB... DAB.... NUC... NCBEL... STC...  the Term Catalogues... Greg...  Howes...  Cowan...  PMM...  Wagner-Camp-Becker...  Rocq... Cagle...  Bitting...  Wheaton & Kelly...  Gabler...   Heffelfinger... Farah...  Mattson....  Walters.... Osborne... Rosenbach....  Welch...  Osborne...  Cotsen....  Halkett & Laing... Cox...  Goldstone & Payne...  Hanneman...  Bleiler....  Locke....  Currey....   &c, &c. If a half-dozen or more of the above are not known to you, then perhaps the 10th Reference Book Workshop will be of interest. The workshop’s purpose is to provide a "hand's-on" introduction to the basic reference books used daily by antiquarian booksellers.


Four main subject areas will be examined:


1.  Literature, including Modern First Editions

2.  Americana, with an emphasis on California & the West

3.  Childrens Books

4.  Early printed books, with a focus on books printed in English.
