"So thoroughly readable a book as this will certainly provide enjoyment; but it should also provoke reflection on the influence of taste upon historical understanding and the scholarly priorities of the last century and a half."—David McKitterick, Times Literary Supplement    

"A splendidly produced and valuable catalog  and history of the library of the Elizabethan club at Yale."—Dean H. Keller, Library and Information Science

"This booklover's book for booklovers is at the same time a valuable reference work, a catalogue of the Yale Elizabethan Club's magnificent library, a collection that excels nearly all university libraries and must be their envy. . . . This book is handsomely produced and lavishly illustrated."—Franklin B. Williams, Georgetown University (Emeritus)

"[An] elegantly produced volume."—Peter Davison, Review of English Studies
