Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Benton's lucid prose exposes this fault line between vision and reality with good humor and rigid research, resulting in the most readable of scholarly tomes. A fine book about fine books, Benton's study will delight bibliophiles with its clever mix of history, anecdote, and analysis."

Kirkus, 01/15/2000

Review:

"[Benton's] range is impressive, from Scott Fitzgerald's description of Gatsy's library to unpublished letters from Frederic Warde to William Kittredge of the Lakeside Press, but her selection tends to reinforce the view that the books, though often magnificent...were largely produced by self important amateurs living in a dream world, and pandering to a market obsessed with conspicuous ownership. This is not a new charge, but it is not usually documented so substantially."

Sebastian Carter, Times Literary Supplement, 07/30/2000
