By Steven K. Galbraith and Geoffrey D. With unique perspectives and specializations developed through working with modern European books in an independent research library and modern American books at a large public university, Galbraith and Smith's Rare Books Librarianship provides a broad overview of the fundamental skills and knowledge necessary for the successful professional. The work offers twelve chapters, each containing footnotes, suggested further reading, and in some instances, images, diagrams, and links to recommended websites. A brief biographical summary of each author as well as an ample index are provided. The book opens with a brief overview of the history of rare book libraries involving the origin of book production, growth of book collecting, and types of rare book libraries. Chapter two, divided into two parts, describes the importance of rare books not only as texts but also as historical artifacts.
