About meRetired civil servant.
Born in East Yorkshire, now living in North West London.

About my libraryQuite 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.
