Notes:
'Guarded by Dragons' follows rare book dealer Rick Gekoski as he uncovers the mysteries behind the most unusual manuscripts and archives he has handled, where stories are weaved within stories. From the original memoir of Dr Watson and his discovery of DNA to how Jeff Bezos improbably paid 2 million for a manuscript of J.K. Rowling's 'Beadle the Bard', Gekoski explores a world full of legacy and billionaires where priceless copies of Ulysses can vanish without a trace. In the world of literary dealership, a manuscript can tell a thousand stories.
