Ticknor Society members discussed their rationales and passions for collecting, member Nick Basbanes moderating. Robin Bledsoe let us in on just what started her collecting horse books; Leonard Scinto admitted to a particular enthusiasm for commedia dell’arte; Joan Nordell shared her fervor for one-of-a-kind artist’s books; and Dan Posnansky opened the door to let us have a peek at his amazing collection of Shelockiana.
