Two of New York's most legendary antiquarian dealers have put pen to paper again and traced the fates of 30 unique books. Both authors scanned the sixteenth through the twentieth centuries looking for boks with interesting narratives. Each book selected has it own dramatic experience, origin and destiny. This collection of essays brings to life a cast of characters such as Shakespear, Descartes, Shelly, Poe, George Eliot, and many others.
