Blitzkrieg and Books : British and European Libraries as Casualties of World War II
Stubbings, Hilda Uren

Bloomington, IN Rubena Press 1993 First edition Octavo (standard size). Slight bump to heel of spine. Faint bit of spotting to top of textblock. 471 p. with maps on endpapers, select bibliography, index, and appendices on the restoration of the Louvain University Library, Books & Libraries in Eastern Europe, and Goebbels speech on burning books. An important and uncommon work on the fate or books and libraries during the war, and the only one to focus on the subject as widely. Very Good in Near Fine Dust Jacket Hardcover (Item ID: 10054)
