ABSTRACT

The loss of book happens not only from natural disaster but from mostly humans’ improper intention to acquire without proper consideration of ethnic standards. We occasionally have difficulty in differentiating between stealing and loving books since it is often called the basic instinct to possess the books. It is however absolutely illegal to take books belong to others without permission due to one’s pure love towards books, passion to possession, or innate instinct. In this study, we define the definition of book theft and classify the cases of historically well-known book theft. It then states the book plunder cases of Nazi with the abuse of public powers, Libri, and Blumberg in terms of quantity and methods as a history of library.
