Welcome to the 18th episode of Rare Book Cafe 2.0. Our guest is Richard Davies of, our Platinum Sponsor for the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair. Richard is PR person for the bookselling website. There seems to be little he has not seen in the book trade. Of what remains, he is like Aristotle: no matter the direction in which we strike, we meet him on the way back.

Miami Beach bookseller Steven Eisenstein is the host of Rare Book Cafe. Thorne Donnelley, owner of Liberty Books in West Palm Beach, 
and Lindsay Thompson, owner of Henry Bemis Books in Charlotte, North Carolina, are co-hosts. The program features Edie Eisenstein, an authority on miniature books.

T. Allan Smith is creator and executive producer.

Rare Book Cafe is produced by the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair, celebrating its 36th year on April 21-23, 2017 at The Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg. Florida Antiquarian Book Fair features booksellers offering rare, used, and collectible book, vintage prints, antique maps, vintage photographs, autographs, and collectible printed matter of all kinds.

Rare Book Cafe originated on in 2015 but the platform shut down in August 2016. The rebooted program now on YouTube (broadcasting live on Google Hangouts on the Air) every Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET. Please join us.
