“Allison Hoover Bartlett has written an excellent account of an obsessed book collector who steals the books he wants, and a self-styled biblio-detective, a bookseller who can't stand the thought of someone stealing books. This one is full of good information and is a riveting story, to boot.”
— Rich Chasse, The Kennebunk Book Port, Kennebunkport, ME

Description


Unrepentant book thief John Charles Gilkey has stolen a fortune in rare books from around the country. Yet unlike most thieves' who steal for profit' Gilkey steals for love -- the love of books. Perhaps equally obsessive is Ken Sanders
