Libraries Through the Ages

Sampul Depan
A&C Black, 1 Jan 1999 - 160 halaman
This completely new book, Libraries Through the Ages, is based on Fred Lerner's earlier The Story of Libraries, which was the first book of its kind in many years. More concise and with nearly twice as many illustrations as its predecessor, Libraries Through the Ages will especially appeal to young readers, as well as to anyone who wants a compact and lively international history of book collecting, from the invention of writing to the computer age.
