book addict quotes

Book Addict quotes have been around for years. In fact, the term bibliomania was first used in the nineteenth century by a doctor at the Manchester Royal Infirmary. A physician named John Ferriar coined the term and dedicated it to his friend Richard Heber, a bibliomaniac. Soon, the term became popular in popular discourse as a term for obsessive book collectors. Some famous bibliomaniacs include Stephen Blumberg, who stole $5.3 million worth of books. Another famous bibliomaniac was Sir Thomas Phillipps, who had an enormous collection of over 180 000 books and manuscripts. In 1872, Phillipps passed away.
