Books & Bookmen marks the distinction between the true book hunter and the mere literary person. It reveals Lang’s poetic enthusiasm for the great book chase among the bookstalls of Victorian London, as he hopes to discover an old French play by Moliere, a first edition of Shelley or perhaps an early English printing of Edgar Poe’s poetry.
