|CATALOG ENTRY||Lawrence & Nancy Goldstone|
Authors (and avid book collectors) Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone take readers along on their various bibliophile travels, including tours of the Beinecke (Yale University's rare book library) and the Folger Shakespeare Library, among others. The essays I particularly enjoyed include the authors' tour of the Library of Congress (they brought their three-year-old daughter along), an appreciation of the English writer Max Beerbohm, and the story of the New England Forger (who was caught selling books with counterfeit author inscriptions). This book is light, wonderful, easy to read, and will appeal to all book lovers.
