THE BIBLIOMANIA OR BOOK MADNESS.
Dibdin, Thomas Frognall
This book is based upon Dibdin's first edition of 1809, to which have been added an introduction and more than eighty pages of valuable endnotes, mostly concerning biographical details of the printers, librarians, bookbinders, writers, book-collectors and bibliomaniacs to whom Dibdin refers. An appendix contains John Ferriar's poem , Bibliomania, which prompted Dibdin's work. A select bibliography and a substantial index are also included.
