Stephen Loewentheil discussed the benefits of giving rare books as gifts in a piece titled The Perfect Gift, part of a series of articles on Leadership Strategy. Loewentheil recounted his work with past Presidents of the United States to source rare books and manuscripts that were given to dignitaries as varied as Mikhail Gorbachev and Pope John Paul II.
“A book by its nature reflects a huge breadth of thought, a huge breadth of value and almost every possible social or business structure that you’d like to reflect. It raises the intellectual stature of both the giver and the recipient.”
