Amateur Antiquaries of the Future

Sarah Werner at Wynken de Worde:

Where are the antiquaries of yesteryear? Do they now collect twentieth century pulp fiction? Classic sci-fi? Modernist design magazines? Is it too expensive to collect earlier works? Are collectors and antiquaries the same thing, anyway?
Part of a longer, typically smart post about amateur scholars’ access to materials — particularly those electronic databases for which colleges and universities pay through the nose. Vive Digital Humanism!
