Editions & Impressions: Twenty Years on the Book Beat
collects thirty-three of Nicholas Basbaness most engaging articles grouped into three sections: Book Culture; People; and Places. Mr. Basbanes writes passionately about bibliomania, bibliokleptomania, and biblioclasms, as well as book people like Otto Bettmann, Tom Wolfe, Michael Zinnman, and others. He travels the world, visiting and reporting on libraries in Sweden, Germany, Iraq, and New York. Mr. Basbanes selected the essays in this collection precisely because they were not replicated in substantial ways in his other books. More than one-third of the essays in Editions & Impressions are published here for the first time in their full, uncut versions, and one essay and the introduction have never been previously published at all. Most of the essays include an endnote, telling the behind-the-scenes story about the article and bringing the subject up to date. 

This superbly crafted issue of Editions & Impressions is bound in a delightful hunter green linen-finished cloth on the spine with matching khaki toned linen-finished cloth on the boards. The khaki toned slipcase with the book is embossed in gold foil. The book includes a hunter green ribbon bookmark and matching headbands. The Limited Edition is also printed on Mohawk Superfine smooth finish stock in a soft-white shade, and it is Smythe sewn into its binding. A total of 255 copies were signed and numbered by the author. 228 pages.
