About meHI,

I have a wide variety of interests, including a passion for books and manuscripts, especially ancient ones.

I love books and collect them for both their physical qualities (bindings, illustrations, printing, etc.) and for their contents (reading, information, etc.). I also have an interest in the history of books and writing and collect materials relating to this, as well. Other areas of interest include: papyrology, archaeology, Egyptology, antiquities, fossils, Paleontology, Natural history, biological sciences, microscopy, microscope slides, art history, history of science and medicine, early photography, stereo-photography, stamps and coins.

About my libraryMy Library

My library consists of a wonderfully eclectic mix of books, manuscripts and other related items. It contains materials spanning some 2,500 years and has been described as a cross between a library and a museum.

A large part of my library consists of an ever-growing reference collection. Non-fiction works in a variety of subjects and fields which relate to my various interests, hobbies and collections. A smaller section of my library consists of fictional works ranging from some of the latest best-selling novels and popular science fiction works to classical authors. My library also contains a modest group of rare printed books and manuscripts.

My LibraryThing Catalog

My LibraryThing catalog is a work-in-progress. I still have much cataloging to do.

My catalog focuses mainly on "books" which I own and are part of my library. It does not include wish list items or simply every book I have ever read.

I've gotten much entered, but still have much more. My catalog has started to expand to include items such as records (in various formats), audio-tapes, CD's, VHS tapes, DVDs, photographic images (in multiple formats), maps and ephemera.

Having materials in various languages, especially non-English and non-Latin character items, presents its own set of cataloging challenges. Not being a linguist, can make detailed identification difficult and sometimes impossible. As items are researched, they are being entered into the catalog. Though in some cases, the catalog descriptions will be very general or limited to mostly descriptive information about the item.

Non-book items are also included in my library. Did you notice the shoes I have listed???? These items carry the tag realia or a descriptive term in braces as part of item title.

Magazines, journals and similar publications are listed as "single" entries with the run dates and volume ranges noted.


Collections and Tags

Collections are a work-in-progress and are still being refined and revised. They are organized into descriptive and subjective categories or groupings. Tags are organized similarly and are used to provide additional detail.

Please Note

Have fun exploring my catalog of books.

Though keep in mind, like many people, ones "library" tends to become almost an organic thing. Growing and expanding in many different ways over time as "books" enter it from a variety of sources. I have books in in over a dozen different languages, ancient and modern. Simply owning a book, does not necessarily mean I have read or can read it or in some cases, agree with, endorse or even have any interest in its contents or subject matter. It may simply be a book with an attractive binding, something I found in a box of books rescued from oblivion in the trash and didn't have the heart to get rid of it or an example of a particular book format.

LibraryThing uses several images of books from my library on the site.

The selection of LibraryThing default book covers includes images of the covers from four books in my library. Are you using one of them as your default book cover? Want to learn more about any of these books? They can be found listed in my LT catalog with the "LT default cover" tag. Also, each of the the book cover images shown below links to the book's details. I have included additional information about the book and/or its binding in the Comments section.
