Description
Drawing on archeological finds, Casson (emeritus, classics, New York U.) traces in purportedly the first full-scale study of its kind the evolution of libraries from their third millennium B.C. debut in Near East palaces, through the Greek and Roman eras, to Christian monastic libraries of the 5-7th centuries. Illustrations in this fascinating read for general as well as scholarly bibliophiles feature book precursors, poetic graffiti exemplifying growing literacy, and famous library ruins/reconstructions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
