Books Have Their Fates

Books Have Their Fates

by Leona Rostenberg

Editorial Reviews

The continuing adventures of the legendary book-dealer team of Rostenberg and Stern, "book detectives," life-long friends, and partners in the book trade for close to 60 years. In this latest work (they have co-authored a number of reminiscences and scholarly studies), they trace 30 histories in which the protagonists are some of the books that have passed through their hands; they begin with the tale of a 16th-century volume about a clock and end with stories about imaginary books, imaginary libraries, and other hoaxes. Illustrated with reproductions of the title pages of the books in question. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
