About the Author

Travis McDade is curator of law rare books at the University of Illinois College of Law. A leading expert on crimes against rare books, maps, documents, and other printed cultural heritage resources, he is the author of three previous books on the subject: Disappearing Ink: The Insider, the FBI, and the Looting of the Kenyon College Library; Thieves of Book Row: New York's Most Notorious Rare Book Ring and the Man Who Stopped It; and The Book Thief: The True Crimes of Daniel Spiegelman.

Reviews

McDade's account of Robert Kindred's book-pillaging spree in university libraries across the United States is a well-told narrative that reads like an Elmore Leonard novel. McDade's dramatic tale of book theft, mutilation, and cultural destruction is firmly grounded in archival sources, field research, and interviews and will appeal to a wide range of readers."" - Mark Rose, professor emeritus of English, University of California, Santa Barbara
