1 Basbanes, Nicholas A. A Gentle Madness : Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes and the Eternal Passion for Books
New York, NY, U.S.A. Henry Holt & Company, LLC 1996 0805036539 / 9780805036534 Hard Cover Fine Fine Collectibles 
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. Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes, and the Eternal Passion for Books. First Owl Book Edition. (Ref. #ACC-MIS3) 
Price: 59.78 USD
