Journalist Bartlett dives in to the world of book collecting much as Alice did down the rabbit hole. Her story begins with the loan of a seventeenth-century book that she fears might be stolen. It leads her to book fairs, antique book shops and a man named Gilkey who steals rare books across the country. Gilkey steals not for love of the contents of the books or the link to authors and centuries past, but because he believes that a fine collection will make him a cultivated person.
