About meMathematician. Classicist. Entrepreneur. Art collector.
About my libraryAreas include language and literature. Many of our books relate to our other collecting interests, such as African and Gandharan art and Chinese furniture. Some books come close to forming collections in their own right, such as vegetarian cookbooks from around the world.
