I'm starting my Christmas wishlist already with James W. P. Campbell and Will Pryce's The Library: A World History. (ISBN: 978-0500342886). The images in this book in look absolutely stunning, and are guaranteed to give you wanderlust.

edit: just like to point out that the fabulous photographer Will Pryce took all of these stunning pictures.
