If you haven't read this book, you need to. It is beautiful and luckily it is the first of a trilogy. Trust me on this. If you like really beautiful, interesting, non-cheesey non-Twilightish romance novels, this is perfect for you.
THOMAS A KEMPIS. OPERA. NUREMBERG, 1494. FOLGER SHAKESPEARE LIBRARY: THIS VOLUME, ONE OF A VERY FEW EXISTING EXAMPLES OF A CHAIN BINDING, STILL RETAINS THE REMNANT OF THE HAND-WROUGHT CHAIN WHICH FASTENED IT SECURELY TO A SHELF. AT THE TIME OF THE PUBLICATION OF THIS BOOK IN THE 1490S, BOOKS WERE SO VALUABLE THAT THEY WERE OFTEN CHAINED IN PLACE TO FOIL THIEVES.
