Rosenblum provides the student of the book with a selective guide to a growing discipline. Emphasis is on more recent works, though classics are included regardless of age. The four sections focus on, but are not restricted to, the book in the West. The first section covers reference works. The second section is devoted to technical aspects of the making of books and manuscripts, such as ink, printing, and binding. The third section is arranged by period, from the ancient world to the present. A final section deals with book collecting, bookselling, and private presses.
Joseph Rosenblum has taught at Duke University, the University of Mississippi, Guilford College, Guilford Technical Community College, High Point University, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His other books include Shakespeare: An Annotated bibliography and American Book Collectors and Bibliographers.
