A Must-read for Bibliomaniacs,
This review is from: The Adventures of a Book Collector (Paperback)
Dr. Philip Murray has a fever: book fever to be precise. In this case the only prescription is confession. Murray, a retired Irish GP, has spent his life reading and collecting books. He has formed wonderful friendships with many authors whom he admires including Seamus Heaney as well as the booksellers with whom he deals. In this wonderful little volume of his own, he shares his passion.
A sure sign of Bibliomania is the enjoyment of reading about the habits of fellow sufferers. You will enjoy these true-life stories about trawling through used-book stores around the world, serindipitous discoveries and tracking down that particularly hard-to-get author's signature on a book.
