The career of historian, bibliographer, and librarian George Parker Winship (1871-1952) combined curatorship and scholarship to a degree that seems remarkable today. As librarian and curator at Brown and later at Harvard, he championed the primacy of the role of rare books in American higher education. As a connoisseur and printer, he played an active role in promulgating enthusiasm for fine printing among collectors and readers in the early twentieth century. Through his teaching at Harvard College, he inspired a generation of bibliophiles.

This slim, elegant volume collects three talks given on April 17, 1997, at a symposium held in Winships memory, and includes an essay by grandson Michael Winship, himself one of Americas preeminent bibliographers.
