Description: Previous editions are cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d ed.. It's the return of the king as the latest edition of a classic—the first complete revision of Carter's text, originally published in 1952—arrives with new information and an introduction by Nicolas Barker, editor of The Book Collector since 1965. Among other changes, the edition adds words created by the introduction of Web-based bookselling (eBay, for instance, rates its own entry), but Barker deftly maintains the original's wry charm. Co-published with The British Library. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
