Books Submitted to the 15th Prize


"The books competing for the prize numbered 52, all of an outstanding quality. There was a great variety of subjects: bibliographies on individuals, typefaces, genres of books,  authors, printing presses and printing houses, on wood engravers and illustrators, maps, charts, geographic areas,  libraries, bookbinding, religion, on book and printing history, and there were excellent studies on publishing histories. Many of these books are wonderfully produced and finely illustrated. The Jury was honoured to be able to see, study and discuss even books from China, Japan and Russia - a novelty in the history of the Prize. We cannot stress enough what a great pleasure it was to be surrounded for two days with so many works executed with great quality, intellectually challenging and bibliographically very interesting. We have been amidst a group of books produced by people who have very often worked or collected for many, many years (and in some cases worked AND collected for many, many years), who have mastered their subject to the fullest extent and who devoted time, money, intellectual curiosity and a great love to their books and subject. All of these books, due to their quality, were individually perfectly capable of presenting and defending their claim for the Prize!"
