The Caxton Club is pleased to announce its support for Georgia State University historian Nick Wilding and his efforts encouraging student book collecting. We’ve already appreciated Nick’s program to our club on the forgery of Galileo’s Sidereus Nuncius and his central role in its exposure. The Bibliographical Society of America recently recognized Nick with a Community Grant which he applied to establishing a contest for Georgia State student book enthusiasts. Winners of this contest are Cole Hale, David Casey, and Fariha Hossain. A copy of the club’s publication, Other People’s Books: Association Copies and the Stories They Tell, has been sent with a letter of congratulations to each winner.
