Summary
"This book makes a claim for the centrality of libraries to the mythos of self-making in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century American culture, focusing on Edith Wharton as its primary case in point. Wharton was never formally educated; rather, her private library collection, portions of which she inherited from her father, formed the basis of an education that would, in time, directly contribute to her success as a popular author"--
