      (I'm teaching myself more these days about both bookmaking and book collecting, so I thought I'd start by reading the Chicago Public Library's collection of titles on these subjects.) Not so much a guide to collecting books as a history of the industry's early days, this is an interesting but non-practical look at obsessive bibliophiles from the days when the collecting of rare books truly did seem like a crazy idea.
