Books I Have Stolen: Cleopatra by Emil Ludwig, Viking Press 1937

I am going to profile every physical book I have ever stolen, including from whom, where, or why, in an effort to convey the degree to which the perceived value of old books has already been reduced to zero (long before the threat of the e-format), and how, conversely, they continue to be treasured by book fetishists such as myself. The alternative to book digitization is losing these works forever to obscurity and decay.
