Handsomely designed and presented this publication deals specifically with an aspect of a librarian’s work that appeals most to the imagination: the acquisition of the most beautiful, unique, rare and valuable works. These may be individual objects or entire collections, and may date from the Middle Ages up to the present time. A total of sixty works, in the form of specially designed bindings, manuscripts, correspondence, magazines and both historical and modern editions, are documented in what is a treat for both bibliophiles and graphic designers alike. Each acquisition is presented over two pages and accompanied by a short written history, with notable items examined through six double-gatefolds inserted in the edition.
