A lovely, quirky, concise conceptual history of librarianship. Don't look here for details (after all, it's only 28 pages), but come for the overarching structure of libraries in history and the (sometimes curmudgeonly, occasionally snarky, always lively) narrative commentary on how it's all interrelated.
