BASBANES, NICHOLAS A
A Gentle Madness : Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes and the Eternal Passsion for Books
New York, Henry Holt. 1995, 1st US Ed. (ISBN: 0-8050-3653-9) Hard Cover. "The passion to possess books has never been more widespread than it is today; indeed, obsessive book collecting remains the only hobby to have a disease named after it. A Gentle Madness is an adventure among the afflicted. Richly anecdotal and fully documented, it combines the perspective of historical research with the immediacy of investigative journalism. Above all, it is a celebration of books and the people who have revered, gathered, and preserved them over the centuries. Author Nicholas Basbanes. a dedicated bibliophile himself, begins his book 2,200 years ago in Alexandria, when a commitment was made to gather all the world's knowledge beneath one roof. In a series of lively chapters, the continuum then passes through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the twentieth century. with a special emphasis on book lore and book culture in Great Britain and North America. In the second half of A Gentle Madness. Basbanes offers a gallery of revealing profiles of living collectors and presents exclusive examinations of the great contemporary stories-the rare-book thefts of Stephen Blumberg: "institutional bilbiomania" at the University of Texas; the mystery man who used $17 million of another preson's money to gain recognition as the greatest book collector alive. These are just a few of the stories detailed for the first time. The book also includes the most comprehensive bibliography on book collecting compiled in more than a quarter century." 638 p.Illus.notes, biibliography index. Fine/Near Fine - Price Clipped.

EPSTEIN, JASON
Book Business: Publishing: Past, Present, and Future
New York, W. W. Norton & Company. 2001, 1st US Edition. (ISBN: 0393049841) . Jason Epstein has led arguably the most creative career in book publishing during the past-century. In 1952 he created Anchor Books, which launched the so-called quality paperback revolution and established the trade paperback format. In the following decade he was co-founder of the New York Review of Books. In the 1980s he created The Library of America and The Reader's Catalog, the precursor of on-line bookselling. In this short book, based on his W. W. Norton Lectures given at the New York Public Library in October 1999, he discusses the severe crisis facing the book business today -- a crisis that affects writers and readers as well as publisher -- and looks ahead to the radically transformed industry that will revolutionize the idea of the book as profoundly as the introduction of movable type did five centuries ago. slight chip on dj, else fine.
