About My Library
Quite an eclectic collection, though one with relatively little fiction. Consisting largely of English history, law, and literature, it contains many reference works.
I have tended to collect books mentioned in footnotes and bibliographies.
I suspect my books breed in the night; and, having inherited thousands more books from my late civil partner, I am now thinning the resultant collection. I've listed a few of the books I thought I might keep - though some have been sold since I did so.
