A propos de ma bibliothèque
Collection built up over 40years, focus on travel and exploration, history, economic history, architecture, Africana, art history, map collecting, British topography, social and agricultural history, Folio Society. Many books collected in my teaching of economic history, history and economics. Strong interest in architecture and housing . I am. also building up collections of Time Life series / Newsweek series (history,
museums, art, cities, photography). My library comprises nearly 14 000 books, and have now been catalogued. All the books in my library are actual books owned by me and can be touched, opened, read and enjoyed as treasures . Books open doors to other people's souls and ideas and take one back through time . I have catalogued in order to know what I own .
