Curiosities of Literature
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Curiosities of Literature (4 vols. 1791-1823; single vol. 1824) is a book by Isaac D'Israeli, a collection of anecdotes about historical persons and events, unusual books, and the habits of book-collectors. The work was very popular and sold widely in the 19th century, going through many editions — it was first published in four volumes over several years but then combined into one. It is still in print.
