Throughout the history of the world, libraries have been constructed, burned, discovered, raided, and cherished--and the treasures they've housed have evolved from early stone tablets to the mass-produced, bound paper books of our present day. The Library invites you to enter the libraries of ancient Greece, early China, Renaissance England, and modern-day America, and speaks to the book lover in all of us. Incorporating beautiful illustrations, insightful quotations, and many marvelous mysteries of libraries--their books, patrons, and keepers--this book is certain to provide you with a wealth of knowledge and enjoyment.

Interesting and fun to read. Ancient history--libraries known only from archaeology--up to our day.
