June is Natural History month at the ILAB-LILA web site: http://www.ilab-lila.com
The ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers) speaks for twenty nations and 2000 leading booksellers throughout the world. Its emblem stands for integrity and professionalism in the rare book trade worldwide.
The League publishes and upholds a code of practice based on the wide experience of all its national associations. The code is binding on all members. It is a mark of the success of this code that disputes are rare. If disputes should arise, the League mediates, and its authority ensures that judgments are implemented.
The League presides over the network that links the antiquarian booksellers of the world.
We are putting natural history in the spotlight. See the different subjects that make up natural history, see who is specialised in the subject and browse through the natural history catalogues. You'll find books, maps and prints.
Natural History is also going to be the theme of this months Virtual Book Fair. Wander about the fair, visit the chat room and meet other visitors and exhibitors. You can also go to the booth of one of the booksellers, if they are on line you will be able to speak to them directly. A simple click of the mouse will take you to the natural history books of the best booksellers in the world. They have brought together a beautiful and unique collection together which you can view from your armchair, with an automatic shopping cart and secure order form at hand. http://www.virtualbookfair.com
