The love of books is bibliophilia, and someone who loves to read, admire, and collect books is called a bibliophile.

The Spalding–Rigdon theory of Book of Mormon authorship is the theory that the Book of Mormon was plagiarized in part from an unpublished manuscript written by Solomon Spalding. The theory first appeared in print in the book Mormonism Unvailed, published in 1834 by E. D. Howe. The theory is that a Spalding manuscript was stolen by Sidney Rigdon, who used it in collusion with Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery to produce the Book of Mormon.

The scions of a prominent Boston family, the brothers William and John Spaulding are remembered today for their legacy as art collectors in the early decades of the twentieth century. It was thanks to them that the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, acquired some of its most enduring masterworks: major European paintings by Goya, Cézanne, van Gogh, Matisse and many others; oils, watercolors and drawings by American masters such as Hopper, Kent and Homer; a remarkable archive of World War I propaganda posters; not to mention its world-renowned collection of Japanese prints. But while the Spaulding name has long been esteemed among art lovers, little has been known about the brothers themselves. Here, historian and collector Frederic A. Sharf sheds light on the men behind these landmark acquisitions, drawing on scores of family papers and archival documents. Handsomely illustrated with artworks from across the spectrum of the Spauldings' collection, as well as with numerous period photographs, this book portrays the crucial role played by collectors in shaping the public trusts that visitors enjoy to this day.
