Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Richly anecdotal and fully documented, "A Gentle Madness" is a celebration of books and the people who have revered, gathered, and preserved them over the centuries. of photos.


Review:

"Reading this prodigiously researched, often absorbing tome, one can almost hear the cries of dozens of smaller books begging to be let out...[Basbanes'] constant theme, effectively hammered home, is that collectors, whatever their vanity or skulduggery, have been responsible for the preservation of knowledge that might otherwise have been lost."

Publishers Weekly, 07/03/1995

Review:

"Nicholas A. Basbanes has compiled a wonderful gallery of modern eccentrics, isolates, charmers and visionaries."

Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World, 07/30/1995
