Moi's Books About Books 

Jerry Morris: Presentation on Moi's Books About Books
Sunday January 19, 2020 at 1:30 pm
Seminole Community Library
9200 113th St. N.
Seminole, Fl. 34667
Moi's Books About Books is short for MoiBibliomaniac's Books About Books Collection. This presentation will be Jerry's fifth before the Florida Bibliophile Society (FBS). The first one was on "William Targ" in 2005, followed by one on "Mary Hyde" in 2006, on "Cataloguing Dead People's Books" in 2009 (libraries of Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, and Charles Lamb on LibraryThing), and one on his collection of "Association Copies" in 2015. Jerry collects in many areas, but his largest collection, "Books About Books," now over 1300 books, includes books about book collecting, bookselling, bookbinding, book history, bookplates, libraries, and almost everything else that has to do with books.
Jerry's presentation is free and open to the public. 
After the meeting, FBS members and their guests will visit DoraLynn Books in Madeira Beach, where there are usually some Books About Books right there on the front counter.
