Throughout the history of the world, libraries have been constructed, burned, discovered, raided, and cherished - and the treasures they've housed have evolved from early stone tablets to the mass-produced, bound paper books of our present day. The Library invites you to enter the libraries of ancient Greece, early China, Renaissance England, and modern-day America, and speaks to the book lover in all of us. Incorporating beautiful illustrations, insightful quotations, and many marvelous mysteries of libraries - their books, patrons, and keepers - this book is certain to provide you with a wealth of knowledge and enjoyment. It includes 80 full-color and 20 black-and-white photographs.
