Documents the professional, scholarly, and personal interests of one of America's most distinguished library directors - a librarian, moreover, who is widely admired in the academic world for the clarity and elegance of his critical writing. In these essays Richard Wendorf's critical intelligence can be gauged in his analysis of works as diverse as the poetical manuscripts of Alexander Pope, Michelangelo Antonioni's Blow-Up,and Piranesi's early etchings, as well as various typographical and bibliographical issues. But several of these essays also reveal another side of the author as he writes in a more personal (and often humorous) style about collecting, libraries, and librarianship.
