The Book Nobody Read: Chasing the Revolutions of Nicolaus Copernicustells the story of the author's quest to see all the copies of the first and second editions of Copernicus' De revolutionibus. He also recounts the impact this publication made on the world over the centuries since its initial publication.
I'm a sucker for the astronomy-related histories, but this one I found doubly interesting since it discussed the impact of a book on the world. I thought it was pretty accessible (not a lot of jargon) and had an interesting plot line.
Probably a few.
(that I recall)
