This book is fantastic. My mother is a librarian and I thought this would look great on her desk. When it arrived I flicked through the pages and fell in love. It is a beautiful book and should be part of everyone's collection.

This is, in every sense, a book lovers' book! It is large, thick and beautifully illustrated and printed. The fold-out pages give a real panoramic view of the greatest, most beautiful libraries of the world.

As has been mentioned in other reviews, this is not a "cheap" volume, but it is a beautiful book, and more books like this should be made.

This is a seriously beautiful book and only published in translation by
Thames and Hudson in 2003.

Large in format with 190 colour plates, many of them are fold-out pages giving a huge three-sheet view of some of the library interiors. The photography is sumptuous and a feast for the eyes - the text describing the twenty-three libraries features is brief but very interesting.

An absolute treat. Highly recommended for a gift to a bibliophile.

Gorgeous insight into the world's libraries. Photographically sumptuous, especially some of the fold-outs. For any bibliophiles this is a foretaste of heaven. I am gradually working my way round the world to visit as many of these libraries as I can, but the book is a little large to take with me as a handbook!

Bought as a present to give away but from what I saw having a quick dip into it, the excellent colour photos make it worth acquiring by any lover of great books and wonderful libraries! Excellent discount on the cover price too! Recommended!
