(p.vii) Behold, then, our brains where they go churning, behold where one loses time, and where the days get wasted: in fingering through papers, turning pages, consuming eyesight, exhausting the tongue, upsetting the stomach, tiring the brain, and going mad with all this blessed reading and writing!

—Anton Francesco Doni, La libraria (p.viii)
