Libraries in the Ancient World


This delightful book tells the story of ancient libraries from their very beginnings, when "books" were clay tablets and writing was a phenomenon. Renowned classicist Casson takes readers on a lively tour, from the royal libraries of the ancient Near East through the private and public libraries of Greece and Rome down to the first Christian monastic libraries. 30 illustrations.
