The Book on the Bookshelf (in Russian) e-book

The author explores the theme of books and bookshelves. He asks: how did books come to be displayed vertically and spine out on shelves? From papyrus scrolls to precious medieval codices to the book as we know it, the readers will follow the evolution of making and storing of books to learn how book collections were managed in different times.

This is a generously illustrated and well written book about books, how they came to be and how people learned to store them.

In the appendix the author provides more than twenty methods of arranging books in a personal library.
