About meAnglophile librarian from Switzerland with a special interest in Book and Library History, English classics and detective novels from the 1920s and 1930s

About my libraryI have just upgraded my LT account to a paid/lifetime account and am now gradually adding the books in my own personal library into LT. Many of the books in my library are "Books on Books", as I'm interested in book and library history. My other main interests are detective/crime novels, the 1920/30s, Victorian literature and generally everything pre-modern.
