Sinopsis:

Bettmann the picture man

From Library Journal:

Bettmann, who describes himself as "a picture man by profession but a word man by inclination," arrived here in 1935, having fled the Nazis with a suitcase full of picture files. Here he tells the story of his setting up and building a commercial picture archive in New York City that now numbers over 12 million items and has a staff of 60. With a raconteur's charm and wit, he lays out his early life and education, beginnings in the business, and subsequent retirement to Florida as adjunct professor of history at Florida Atlantic University. While Bettmann made a fortune out of people's love of illustrations, he was also a bookman, pianist, lover of Bach, inveterate walker, and devoted grandfather (he includes some snapshots), and his passions come through in this work. This book complements other titles by Bettmann, which include Bettmann Archive Picture History of the World ( LJ 11/15/78), The Good Old Days ( LJ 3/15/75), and The Bettmann Portable Archive ( LJ 1/15/67; 1992. rev. ed.). Informed readers will appreciate this autobiography, which, as one might expect, is amply illustrated with Bettmann Archives images.
