Bookhunting in our Day Impressions of a Bibliophile

Bookhunting in our Day Impressions of a Bibliophile ONE of the most remarkable features of the present century is the comparative cheapness of books, most noticeable in the case of the reprint, through the medium of which the public can, for the consideration of what, even today, is a small sum, become familiar with the greatest literature of all time. In the average home today there will almost certainly be found a good collection of new and attractive books in a great variety of editions. Students and serious readers have now no difficulty in building up adequate working libraries of their own, at no great cost and in a short time. In a word, pleasure, knowledge, and what we loosely term culture may be had for a modest outlay. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

ONE of the most remarkable features of the present century is the comparative cheapness of books, most noticeable in the case of the reprint, through the medium of which the public can, for the consideration of what, even today, is a small sum, become familiar with the greatest literature of all time. In the average home today there will almost certainly be found a good collection of new and attractive books in a great variety of editions. Students and serious readers have now no difficulty in building up adequate working libraries of their own, at no great cost and in a short time. In a word, pleasure, knowledge, and what we loosely term culture may be had for a modest outlay.
