Review: ABC for Book Collectors

User Review  - Jen - Goodreads

Had to read this for a summer class on the history of the book. Written dictionary style it was a bit of a slog to get through, but it also had some dry British humor mixed in. The entry for "misprints" was actually hilarious. Useful if you plan on collecting old books. Read full review
