Percy Muir & John Carter, by Nicolas Barker The Book Collector Podcast

    • Arts

Percy Muir and John Carter were both hugely influential to The Book Collector, and the post-war book world in general.

"If the book trade was the vehicle by which they left their mark, it was a mark that extended far beyond the trade, influencing collectors and libraries and through them a world that stretched beyond the boundaries of academic life to those who never knew or have even heard of them."

This article was written as a tribute to them by Nicolas Barker for our Winter 2004 issue, 25 years after the death of Percy Muir, and approaching the centenary of the birth of John Carter.
