The Library of Alexandria was one of the greatest cultural adornments of the late ancient world. It contained thousands of scrolls of Greek, Hebrew and Mesopotamian literature, as well as art and artifacts of ancient Egypt. This book brings together a distinguished array of scholars to bring this great institution--tragically destroyed--back to life.
