"Arthur Schwarz and his coauthors have elected ... to channel Henry in his many shapes and sizes at one and the same time, his kingly strengths and Persian flaws, concomitantly exposing the good, the bad, and the indifferent with equal measure .... This is most definitely a book about books-as-objects and artifacts, giving rise to a broad historical eclecticism that is as entertaining to the lay reader in its sheer diversity as it is informative, thanks largely to Schwarz's succinct narrative and well-illustrated, sectional essays and catalogue entries."--Earle Havens, The Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America
