Many books collected in my teaching of economic history, history and economics. Strong interest in architecture and housing .

All the books in my library are actual books owned by me and can be touched, opened, read and enjoyed as treasures . Books open doors to other people's souls and ideas and take one back through time . I have catalogued in order to know what I own .
