Membaca buku ini kerana berminat untuk mengetahui agaknya apa lah genre atau kecenderungan pembacaan di Era Victorian.

Malangnya, Andrew Lang seperti kebanyakan di era Victoria seakan akan melebihkan aspek penjagaan buku, uniknya kulit buku yang sebolehnya dibuat berbeza dari yang lain , berbanding dari isinya. mungkin pepatah Inggeris " Don't judge a book by its cover" ditujukan kepada mereka di era Victorian.

A sort of manual on the care and procuring of books in the Victorian era. He's all about fetishisation of a book's form rather than admiring its actual contents*, but there are charming moments and bits of poetry tucked in.

*Just like women!--Lang is a typical Victorian, so there's a segment in which he describes how women just can't understand why their husbands spend so much money on books, et cetera.
