As the title says, this book is about the publication of the British Museum's catalog of books in the 1800s, primarily the transition from a manuscript to a printed catalog. You might ask, "Who cares?" I can't answer that. Nonetheless, I found this tale of bureaucratic and academic wrangling somewhat endearing. I could imagine the many clerks carefully copying and sorting entries, the highly opinionated senior librarians writing strongly worded memoranda, and treasury managers wondering where all the money was going.
