Library: An Unquiet History

Designer: book-fiction-store

Sold Out

Through the ages, libraries have not only accumulated and preserved but also shaped, inspired, and obliterated knowledge. Matthew Battles, a rare books librarian and a gifted narrator, takes us on a spirited foray from classical scriptoria to medieval monasteries, from the Vatican to the British library, from socialist reading rooms and rural home libraries to the Information Age. Encyclopedic in breadth and novelistic in its telling, Library is a slim history that speaks volumes.
