Biblio Researching, Biblio-Connecting and Biblio Reviewing

This month I will post a thread from my Biblio Researching blog, and a thread from my Biblio-Connecting blog.  And I will provide a review of My Sentimental Library blog posts for the year.

From my Biblio Researching blog:
Researching the Value of Outlines of the Life of Shakespeare

From my Biblio-Connecting blog:
Biblio-Connecting: monthly blogs

From My Sentimental Library blog:

Jan:  Always Be On Time
My goal was to post at least one blog entry per month.   In two months I posted two        entries to this blog.  And in two months I posted two entries from my other blogs.

Jan:  Arthur Schlesinger's Bookplate:The Whole Picture
How I discovered the source document for Schlesinger's bookplate

Feb:  Changing Bookplates: Multiple Bookplates of Famous People
Inputs from the bookplate maven Lew Jaffe, the book collector Mark Samuels Lasner, and the scholar Linde Brocato.

Mar:  Two Hurt Books And Their Former Owners
Two books formerly owned by two New Yorkers: Paul Leicester Ford and Daniel Van Pelt.

Mar:  Maureen E. Mulvihill List of Online Work
The online works of the  guest hostess, the Irish-American Scholar Maureen E. Mulvihill.

Apr:  My William Targ Collection
Targ was a bookseller, author, editor, publisher, and book collector.  A true bibliophile.

May:  My Many Lives of Samuel Johnson
Grab a chair.  I have a lot of biographies of Samuel Johnson.

Jun:  Ten Books From Texas and Two Reminiscences
My first visit to Larry McMurtry's town of books in Archer City, Texas

Jul:   Blog Posts From Two of My Other Blogs
The first post is from my Biblio Researching blog and documents my somewhat fumbling research of a Greek classic.  The second post is a running diary of my life in the book world.  An abbreviated version was published in the October issue of The Caxtonian.

Aug:  Grand Moments
All about grandchildren, mine and those belonging to bibliophiles in my library.
Sep: My Autograph Letter Collection
Another part of My Sentimental Library Collection.  I strive to have copies of books by and about authors I collect, books they formerly owned,  bookplates if they had them, catalogues of their libraries, and autograph letters either to or from them.

Oct: In And About Foley
A post about an American bibliographer.

Nov:J.O. Halliwell-Phillipps, Bibliophile
My review of The Shakespeare Thefts perked my interest in Halliwell-Phillipps.

Yes. 2011 has been a very good year for reading, researching, collecting, and posting about books. May 2012 be an even better year!

Wishing all of you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
