Rick Stattler at the John Russell Bartlett Society

This Saturday, Rick Stattler, Swann’s Printed & Manuscript Americana specialist, will speak at the John Russell Bartlett Society in Providence, Rhode Island. He will discuss his role at Swann—one of the country’s oldest rare book auction houses—and will offer informal appraisals to Society members. Rick, who previously worked at the Rhode Island Historical Center and attended Brown University, is a familiar face to members of the society, which honors one of the rare-book world’s legendary figures.
