About meI'm a 50+ year old Dutchman who is mad about beautiful books. Book collecting is not 'a gentle madness' as Nicholas Basbanes holds, but a terrible, incurable disease that's getting worse as one gets older. But, it must be said, it's also the only disease that can be cured by... books.
About my libraryI have over 5,500 volumes in my library, with a current grow rate of about 100 books per year. Main focus on islands, travel, discovery and exploration, (maritime) history, books about books, biography, atlases and erotica. Here on LT, I plan to add my non fiction books and mainly those that are in English, German or French. Adding my books to LT is quite a tough job since so many of them are pre-ISBN or otherwise can't be found in on-line book resources. I found that 100's of my books are not even in the Library of Congress, for instance.
