Book Description The World Publishing Company, Cleveland, first edition, 1960, 1960. Cloth, 8vo, 25 cm, [2], 616, [3] pp, plates. A splendid biography of one of the most colourful and successful of booksellers, written by two former employees of Rosenbach who became prominent bookmen themselves. Packed with fascinating detail on Rosenbach's sales and purchases, showmanship, auction coups, and the collectors and dealers of his time. A contemporary review accurately predicted "This book will undoubtedly become a classic in its genre, and will be read with consuming interest by bibliophiles, bookmen, librarians, publishers - anyone who believes in thie greatness of books". From the blurb: "'The Doctor,' as he was familiarly known to collector-friends and employees, for decades bought most of the important rare books and manuscripts sold at auction in England and America. Front-page articles heralded his achievements and his name became synonymous with great books at great prices. It was not just that he paid more money for books than anyone had before, or that he sold more books for more money than anyone before, but that the buying and selling were the manifestations of a faith in the greatness of great books that he persuaded other men to share. His faith was contagious beyond the small circle of men who could buy a book collection or a railroad with equal aplomb. " Endpapers browned, contents slightly agetoned, otherwise Good in somewhat soiled and edgeworn dustwrapper. Full-page review from the TLS laid in. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-40565
