About meI am a retired antiquarian book dealer,living in Egypt during the Winter and Turkey in the Summer

About my libraryThe books catalogued here are the ones I have purchased in Egypt over the last two years I have another library in Turkey and a further storage unit in the UK with several thousand books. In recent years I have become increasingly interested in ancient history, particularly Greek and Roman and since living in Turkey,the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires.
