A dense read of smallish type, but an invaluable resource for those of us who can't afford to access the full-size Oxford Companion to the Book. As with most book history texts in English, it is focused on Western books/publishing/printing, but it includes chapters on all major book-producing regions. Some of the chapter bibliographies lead only to works in the relevant language, but others provide entrance to further research in English.
