About this Item: Grolier Club, New York, 2013. Softcover. Condition: As new. First edition. Octavo. decorated blue wrappers, lettered in black. Profusely illustrated. "In spite of Libri's expertise and learning, all of his achievements in the world of books Ðas an historian of science, paleographer, collector, bibliographer, and booksellerÐ were tied directly or indirectly to his crimes. Because he was driven by passions with no respect for law, except when law was to his advantage, it seems unlikely that he would have accomplished anything noteworthy in the world of books had he not succeeded to such an extraordinary extent in book-related crime. . We must remember Libri's skills as a politiican: His exceptional social skills led him close to the top of the French government ." -from the conclusion.The catalogue describes in detail 108 items from Libri's library, and also contains "The Life and Exploits of Count Guglielmo Libri, The Greatest Book Thief of All Time" a lecture given by Jeremy Norman at the Golier Club.
