Not as good as Basbanes's A Gentle Madness or Patience and Fortitude, but a bit more of a personal memoir on book collecting with some history thrown in. He does this in ten short chapters and an informative appendix. Published in 2002, there are some spots that are dated. The novelty of the internet and eBay, for instance. How many of the booksellers he speaks to shy away from the internet: they're probably all out of business, dead, or ON the internet now. Book prices on CDrom, putting your books in a searchable file on your PC word processor, etc. And, no images. All of Basbanes's books should be released in lush illustrated editions, like some of Bill Bryson's books. But, no images here and no index either. Still, a fun appetizer of a book, even for those of us lean on funds and whose "collections" tend more toward information, interests, and utility, instead of "rarity," expense, and investment. ( )

Subtitled "Strategies and Perspectives for the Book Hunter in the Twenty-First Century", this is about how the book hunter or collector finds what they're looking for from specialized book sellers or the internet. It also looks at several book sellers of specialized materials, whether that's books that are hundreds of years old or daguerrotypes from the beginnings of photography. Basbanes, a former book reviewer with an enormous home library, writes of many instances in his own collecting. Often, because of his job, he was able to meet the author or illustrator of the books he coveted, which is pretty cool. ( )

A much quicker read than his seminal work, A Gentile Madness, Nicholas Basbanes creates a book that is both an enjoyable read and a handy reference on the does and don'ts of book collecting in the age of the internet. Even though it was published in 2002, it has held up remarkably well. In fact, most of the websites that he references are still going strong 13 years later. Among the Gently Mad is certainly not a comprehensive reference work. It is light on information and Basbanes loves to name-drop all the collectors he rubs elbows with. But this is part of what makes it an enjoyable read rather than a trudge. If Among the Gently Mad does nothing else, it will inspire you to add some better choices to your own collection. ( )

As I look back, I am acutely conscious that every primary and priceless work of literature I have handled and studied in a library had originally been part of a private collection. Whether it was the packrat instinct or a find humanistic passion that led the first collector to bring this book together with the others so that ultimately many works of scholarship were based on them is of no importance — the value to humanity is the same. And, I trust, so is the pleasure to the collector.

The first documented use of the word bibliomania in English came in 1750 when Philip Dormer Stanhope, the fourth Earl of Chesterfield and a wily politician with a gift for turning a memorable phrase, sent a haughty letter to his illegitimate son, then away at school, to warn of a consuming diversion that should be avoided like the bubonic plague.
