Library History again

Lorcan

A long time ago I wrote ….

If you have $495 to spend, or £261.25, you can acquire The Cambridge history of libraries in Britain and Ireland. The publisher claims that this is “The most comprehensive history of libraries from their beginnings to the digital age”.

Three volumes, 2072 pages, 4.99 lbs.

I would be interested in reviewing the third volume if somebody is looking for a reviewer ….. [Lorcan Dempsey’s weblog: Library history]

My review of Volume III appears in the current issue of Ariadne. John MacColl reviewed Volumes I and II.
