Book Collector’s Evening

February 13 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Printer’s Error tells stories from the history of print — which all sounds very dignified; after all, the printing press has recorded and spread some of the greatest achievements of humankind. But remember: humankind is also full of idiots. Our predecessors who lived hundreds of years ago are not so very different from us, and we can’t help but laugh in recognition of our shared folly. This is the story of five books which demonstrate that the printed word is glorious, but it’s also nuts — because we are gloriously nuts.

Rebecca Romney is a rare book dealer at Honey & Wax Booksellers and the author (with J.P. Romney) of Printer’s Error: Irreverent Stories in Book History (HarperCollins). Romney first joined the rare book trade in 2007, when she was hired to help launch the Las Vegas gallery of Bauman Rare Books. She became manager of the gallery two years later, eventually moving to Philadelphia to manage the central operations of the firm. Since 2011, she has appeared regularly as the rare book expert on the History Channel’s show Pawn Stars. Now settled on the East Coast, Romney joined Honey & Wax in the summer of 2016; in 2017, she and her partner Heather O’Donnell established the Honey & Wax Prize, an award for an accomplished book collection created by a young woman. She is a member of the Grolier Club, the Philobiblon Club, the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing (SHARP), a graduate of the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar and Rare Book School, and serves on the Rare Book School Scholarship Committee.
