Book Madness: A Story of Book Collectors in America tells the story of bibliophile and book collecting in mid-nineteenth century America when the Country's major libraries were being formed. Denise Gigante (Stamford University) is the author of half a dozen books including The Keats Brothers: The Story of John and George (Harvard University Press), a New York Times notable book. She is working to complete The Mental Traveler: A Blakean Pilgrimage through Medieval and Renaissance Iconography, based on her Clarendon Lectures at Oxford University in 2020.
