Library: An unquiet history February 18, 2007

Filed under: Books about Books — Kim @ 5:21 am

I am a sucker for libraries, and most likely so are you. This book is about the history of libraries. The book features all the good and bad that could happen to a library. It seems to be a must have if you are a librarian. Or anybody that would like to know more about libraries. (Yes, I have put this one on my list as well….) The book is about book burning and the worship of the library and everything in between. Which is quite a lot… It is written by a rare book librarian at Harvard, Matthew Battles. If you want to know more about libraries, this book is your thing! You can find out about it and look inside it here. (EU click here)

    That’s a great book, but I am wondering if you have ever seen this wonderfully trashy pulp paperback cover?

    Haha. It’s great! I did not know there were librarians like that. LOL. I have to have that book for my collection. (My collection of books about books. So there will be no confusion, haha.)
