In two parts: 48 entries for tablets, manuscripts and early printed books, generally in Greek, from ancient times to 1500, with an intermittent text discussing the libraries recorded and unrecorded, which may have been or were associated with these items. With illustrations. The second part provides an additional 126 entries, again, predominately for works in Greek, from 12 extant libraries and one no longer extant but well-attested. Each library is described, with photographic or other illustrations. Most are well-known, but two Greek libraries of the Middle Ages and the late Renaissance should be somewhat less familiar.
