First U.S. Edition. Part detective story, part history lesson, part exposé, The Book of Lost Books is the first guide to literature's what-ifs and never-weres. In compulsively readable fashion, Stuart Kelly reveals details about tantalizing vanished works by the famous, the acclaimed, and the influential, from the time of cave drawings to the late twentith century.
