Detailed Product Description
London, Kegan Paul, Trench, Trbner, and Co., 1893, 1st edition. 228 pp, illustrations, index, Red cloth hardcover with gilt titles and decoration and faded spine. Remarkably good condition for the age of the book. Near Fine.

Traces the collecting of books from antiquity to the nineteenth century. Some of the figures here, like Sir Thomas Bodley and Petrarch, are familiar, though the Eltons' discussion even in these cases in valuable. Other figures are likely to be less familiar to the general reader. Niccolo de Niccoli of Florence, for example, an important figure in Renaissance humanism, assembled one of the finest libraries in Italy and allowed the general public to use it. Gian-Vincenzio Pinelli of Padua also built a library open to scholars. Well-written and attractively illustrated. History of books including classical, Ireland, Italy, England and other European countries.
