"...informative and evocative glimpses of 120 distinguished book-people...now deceased, who have been members of the Grolier Club." "The focus here is on figures who made important contributions to the world of books...": private & institutional collectors, antiquarian booksellers, book designers, and fine printers. Each biographical essay is written by a current Club member with some connection to his subject (either knew him, or has worked in the same field of endeavor, etc.), so in addition to factual information there are special insights. An indispensable guide to 20th century book collectors and other bibliophiles.
