"The Private Library" is a vintage guide to forming and maintaining a personal library at home, with chapters on everything one might need to know from taking care of your books to bookbinding, determining value, classification, buying and selling, and much more. This volume will appeal to serious book collectors and literature lovers alike, and it would make for a fantastic addition to any private collection. Contents include: "What is a Good Edition?", "What is a Fine Copy?", "Book Values", "On the Care of Books", "The Art of Reading", "Common-place Books", "Reference Books", "Boudoir Libraries", "Bookbinding", "Book Hobbies", "Old Country Libraries", "Weeding Out", "The Catalogue", "Classification of Books", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
