Some brief overview of this book

The Charming Husband-and-Wife writing team who brought us Used and Rare and Slightly Chipped is back with another delightfully whimsical foray into the world of books and book collecting. This time around. Larry and Nancy Goldstone, accompanied by their wise and witty eight-year-old daughter, Emily, treat their readers to a fabulous personal tour of the Library of Congress (114,000,000 books, so little time). They also entertain us with unorthodox behind-the-scenes looks at the Folger Library and the Beinecke, Yale Universitys Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

Forgeries, famous and otherwise; feature largely among the tidbits of arcane booklore that the Goldstones share with their readers this time around. The clever detective work that led to the uncovering of the infamous New England forger is recounted in all its fascinating detail, as is the case of the murderous Mormon. Fans of The Antiques Roadshow will find here an amusing bibliographic counterpart. For example, curious book catalogue offerings include a wall calendar (The Many Uses of Milk) that Michael Ondaatje used in 1974 to jot down his familys routine appointments. The asking price—$250!

Intended for those readers who already know a lot about books but want to learn more, Warmly Inscribed is the perfect gift for the book lover in your life (who just may turn out to be you).
