Double Fold: Libraries and the Assault on Paper, Baker, Nicholson
1 Baker, Nicholson Double Fold: Libraries and the Assault on Paper
New York, New York Random House 2001 0375504443 / 9780375504440 First Edition/First Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
This copy of "Double Fold" has been SIGNED by Nicholson Baker on the title page! Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. In this passionately argued book the author explains the marketing of the brittle-paper crisis and the real motives behind it. Pleading the case for saving our newspapers and books so that they can continue to be read in their original forms, he tells how and why our greatest research libraries betrayed the public's trust by selling off or pulping irreplaceable collections. "Double Fold," the author's first full-length non-fiction in a decade, is a timely book on a subject of great intellectual and historical importance.
