About meIf we are what we read, make of me what you will:
About my libraryThe library of a serial monomaniac. Collections assembled as each interest flared up. Only some interests have died away, so perhaps I don't really deserve the "mono" of monomaniac. An antiquarian interest in Lancashire (before it was torn apart by Greater Manchester, Merseyside etc.), one-inch Ordnance Survey maps (as they were being replaced by Landranger maps), Wales in general and Ceredigion in particular, islands, the Dark Ages, Penguin Classics (especially the Icelandic sagas), Arthur Ransome, with spin-offs into fishing, cruising and the last days of the merchantile Age of Sail. I occasionally catch myself fanning a flame too far, and have to tell myself firmly to "Stop it". Examples of collections pinched in the bud include Rupert Hart-Davis and the Lonsdale Library.
