LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Henry Holt & Co, New York - Owl Book edition ISBN:080504826X, 1996. Large softcover, 6" x 9. Packed book weighs 1¼kgs (3lbs). Book in AS NEW condition. Fifty-five b&w photographs, bibliography, and index. Oh, gentle lover of books, here is a warning of that which may befall you - Nicholas Basbanes introduces the collectors, philanthropists, curators, and librarians who have fallen under the spell of the printed work. Using the $20million theft by Stephen Blumberg of books from 268 US libraries to add dramatic impact to his investigation, the author meets authors, auctioneers, antiquarian booksellers, rare-book connoisseurs, dealers, the litterati, and collectors in an effort to understand bibliomania. A wonderful book which demonstrates how permeating the book-bug can become (and a joy to read!).
