About My Library
Well over 800 volumes of climbing-mountaineering lit and guidebooks alone, including many first editions and signed. Plus -- hundreds of books on figure skating, science fiction, history, medicine-nursing-health-altitude illness, USSR-Russia, writing, faith-spirituality-Christianity, search and rescue, biographies, art, crafts-assemblage, sewing-costuming, Princess Diana...I am interested in a LOT of things.

Climbing books have been tracked for some years now via an Excel spreadsheet as so many are unusual or valuable for various reasons: imported, first editions, long out-of-print, or who has signed them. (Not to be be morbid, but there are old climbers, and there are bold climbers. But -- there are no old, bold climbers.)

Tags: an asterisk (*) indicates the book is completely cataloged, and that the cover, ISBN, and other info are correct for that particular edition.

--------------------------------

UPDATE 1 March 2008:
The majority of our climbing books have now been cataloged.

UPDATE 6 Sept 2008:
Caving and altitude medicine books in progress.

UPDATE 13 Sep 2008:
Bookshelves remain far from cataloged...and I also found several boxes packed full. Ack! Religion & novels are currently in progress.

UPDATE 25 Sept 2009:
Nursing & medicine in progress. This is gonna take a while...
