I've just began reading it, but Georges Didi-Huberman's preface is magnificent. Warburg's Mnemosyne project, carefully described and explained by Michaud, has that element of strangeness that always captures my attention in an encounter with a thinker. Borges employed the same reading criterion, by cultivating his particular list of "raros". Warburg has just become one of my "raros"...
This book is a great study on Warburg and his immense historical scope in determining through the image a sense of motion in the beginning of moving pictures. It also deals with his amassing an atlas of material and organizing it in a logical but idiosyncratic way around core concepts in a non-linear or hierarchical sense. Fascinating.
