The Book Collector launches complete digital archive
James Fleming: “We’re excited to be working with Exact Editions to extend the journal’s reach to an international academic audience.”

It currently comprises 280 issues that can be accessed on web, IOS and Android devices.

Commenting on all aspects of books, the quarterly issues of The Book Collector feature articles written by international experts together with book reviews, auction results indexed by title and author, details of book dealers’ catalogues and of exhibitions held worldwide.

Ian Fleming, who is best known for his creation of the character of James Bond but who also had a lesser-known passion for book collecting, founded The Book Collector the same year that he wrote Casino Royale, the first Bond novel. The range and sharpness of the writing make The Book Collector an essential resource for all who are interested in our literary heritage, whether students, academics or literature enthusiasts, say the publishers.

The new digital archive’s stacking interface means that each decade, year and issue benefits from the advanced search functionalities of the Exact Editions platform. Specific authors, articles and topics can be located instantly and shared with fellow subscribers.

The Book Collector is available in the Exact Editions individual and institutional shops.

Publisher James Fleming said: “The brand new digital archive will be a resource that proves second to none to those who study or have a passion for literature. We’re excited to be working with Exact Editions to extend the journal’s reach to an international academic audience.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, commented: “It’s a joy to have the complete archive of The Book Collector on the platform. The issues have transferred wonderfully to both web and mobile digital platforms and it will attract subscribers from around the globe.”
