On forgeries and fakes

In case you haven’t followed the comments on my post about the Abraham Lincoln Assassination Poster, Paul Romaine has been providing some valuable tips on detecting forgeries when purchasing rare stock. Paul mentions that it is important for new buyers to frequent exhibits and book fairs and to socialise with seasoned dealers, who have experience in the trade. He also highlights the value of reading through auction catalogues and frequenting rare book libraries.  Have a read through his comments, as he offers great advice and a neat list of authors who can provide great insight into fakes and forgeries.
