¶ "This book is by two of New York's most legendary antiquarian dealers. It is a collection of essays in which all the protagonists are books. The authors have scanned the sixteenth to the twentieth century looking for books with interesting narratives. This work brings to life a cast of characters such as Shakespeare, Descartes, Shelley, Poe, George Eliot, and many others. Within these pages, the fates of some 30 books are traced and brought to life in suspenseful sequence." - from the Publisher.
