Henry Petroski (au). One evening, while reading in his study, Henry Petroski looked up from his book & saw his bookshelves in a new & different light. Instead of being just places on which to store books, the shelves themselves intrigued him as artifacts in their own right, & he wondered how they came to be. He began to look for answers -- in books, which led him to libraries. He found that, as simple as the bookshelf might appear to be as an object of construction & utility, the story of its development, which is intertwined with that of the book itself, is curious, mysterious, & fascinating. This unique book, illustrated with woodcuts, drawings, & photos, tells the history of the development of bookshelves. Bibliography.
