A bookseller tells the story of some of the world's greatest books, and their importance as landmarks in the history of mankind. Thomas discusses the progress of the printed word and illustration: Manuscripts; Early Printing; Bookbinding; the evolution from illustrated Herbals of the 15th century to the grand colour plate flower books of the late 19th century; Books on Architecture; The New World; Private Press Books; First Editions, Fakes and Forgeries; and Great Book Collectors.

A really interesting read for someone who knows nothing about books, does not read much.. or for someone who thinks he or she knows everything!
