Disambiguation notice
The original 1809 ed. is a slim (c.80 pp.) mock treatise purporting to diagnose and cure the "book-disease", so that it fits into the genre of literary satire. The 1811 Bibliomania ; or book madness : a bibliographical romance, in six parts, while often conflated with the first, is a vastly different work. It is almost 800 pages, has turned into a peculiar generic hybrid Dibdin terms "bibliographical romance", and consists of dialogues on books and book-collecting conducted by a set of male characters, two of whom court shadowy female figures in the intervals between their more intense romancing of books.
