IS A BIBLIOPHILE?
The genus bibliophile is hard to define. He is a book lover, a collector and omnivorous reader of books and bookseller's
catalogs; he may also be a book scout, or a scholar or a librarian. He may be mad about typography and fine paper. He/she
may not know the properties of a hypotenuse or the nature of a silicon chip, but in the end, his/her tombstone will read,
simply, BIBLIOPHILE. A lovely word.
