Summary
"Our personal libraries reveal our true nature. Far more than just places, they are living labyrinths of our innermost feelings. Jacques Bonnet, a lifelong accumulator of books both ancient and modern, lives in a house large enough to accommodate his many thousands of books, as well as overspill from the libraries of his friends. While his musings on the habits of collectors past and present are learned, witty and instructive, his advice on cataloging may even save the lives of those whose books are so prodigiously piled as to be hazardous to one's health."--Dust jacket
