Description : The goods were kept in a secure room under constant scrutiny, deep inside a crowded building with guards at the exits. In the Depression, some fellows were willing to try anything-- even a heist in the rare book room of the New York Public Library. McDade tells the gripping tale of the worst book-theft ring in American history, and the intrepid detective who brought it down. The goods: a first edition of Edgar Allan Poe's Al Aaraaf, Tamerlane and Minor Poems. A fascinating look at the history of crime and literary culture.

Description : Higginbotham traces the development of such techniques as care and handling of library materials; pest control; repair and binding; emergency planning; and temperature control, lighting, and other environmental safeguards. While her primary focus is books, she also looks at pamphlets, periodicals, and maps, as well as the influence of rare book and manuscript handling on preservation techniques.
