Don't ask rare book's price 'it's a thing for the mind' By BERNIE GOEDHART EDMONTON (CP) John Charles declined politely but firmly, to reveal the price of the volume in front of him It was a large book, bound in red moroccan leather and decorated with gold figures Entitled Night Thoughts, by Edward Young the volume carried full-page illustrations by the well-known artist and poet William Blake It is one of 20 copies known to have been colored by hand and was published in 1797 The reason Mr Charles re- fused to reveal its monetary value, or that of any other item in University of Al- berta's special collections di- vision of which he is librai .n is that he feels "it encourages people to think in the wrong direction They think of it as if it was a diamond or a Cadillac rather than a thing for the mind." In the case of Night Thoughts it is Blake's illus- trations that make the book valuable to the division, which also houses a large collection of facsimiles of Blake's illustrated works AIDED BY SPECIALISTS "Dr E J Rose of the Eng- lish department, a world au- thority on Blake, has encour- aged development of our Blake collection. Mr Charles said Similarly, the presence of Dr J F Forrest, a specialist in the area of John Bunyan's works, has given impetus to the university's Bunyan collection Special collections began in 1964. when the university's Cameron Library opened Among its more significant items are the Eccles collec- tion of D H volumes when and the Ford collection of Bunvan PLANT PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Salary Supervision of 25 personnel and maintenance of Production and Grading standards.
