The Book on the Bookshelf (in Russian)

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.
