About meI am an intellectual and cultural historian, specializing in early modern Europe, the history of science, and the history of scholarship. My hobbies include photography, bicycling, cooking, and wasting time on the Internet.

About my libraryMy library contains books that I have bought in my areas of specialty, books of general academic interest, books related to my hobbies, some of my fiction and poetry, and weird titles connected in strange ways to the kinds of questions and problems that interest me.
Note: the fact that I possess a book doesn't mean I have read it, while (of course) there are plenty of books I have read or consulted that I don't own.

Cataloguing update, 2009-03-25: I'm still cataloguing books in my office, and most of my literature, poetry, and general nonfiction at home is not yet on LT. Quamplurimi libri, vita brevis!
