Bibliophile Love: The Oxford Companion to the Book
Here’s a book that makes my heart go pitter-patter. Oxford University press is publishing The Oxford Companion to the Book. It’s a two volume set at 1,327 pages that contains everything a bibliophile could ever want to know about books. Now if I can just somehow justify the $275 expenditure… Maybe someday when the second edition arrives, I’ll find a used first edition at a bargain price. Or maybe I’ll have won the lottery by then.
