About meBeen collecting too many years to admit to. Current library is probably the third I've put together, emigrating from the UK to Canada did tend to concentrate the collection. Yes, I do regret some of the ones I let go but have not had to repurchase too many of them. Not that I would admit to anyway.
About my libraryStrong on Royal Navy, and British naval aviation - RNAS, Fleet Air Arm, carriers - from 1908 to modern day, with emphasis on pre-1942. General aviation collection - military (WW1, between the wars and WW2), civil and private aviation, mainly pre jet age. A wide ranging general history collection, predominently British, also engineering/industrial revolution, railways. World War 1, other than naval and aviation, is generally the "Sideshows". The Spanish Civil War continues to fascinate. A general eclectic collection of fiction (mostly stuff I enjoyed at a younger age), ballet, art and design, architecture and a large Batsford publisher selection. There is also a food and cookery collection to be added at some stage.
