About meI like to write about my books and have a number of blogs:

And one non-book-related blog about my childhood growing up near Idlewild Airport, my career in the Air Force, and beyond: http://IdlewildBlueYonder.blogspot.com

I am one of the 52 authors whose essay is included in the 2011 Caxton Club book, Other People's Books: Association Copies and the Stories They Tell.

I am one of the 52 "finders" in Rare Books Uncovered: True Stories of Fantastic Finds in Unlikely Places by Rebecca Rego Barry (Dec 2015).

I've become involved with the LT group, I See Dead People's Books, and have helped catalog the libraries of Samuel Johnson, Charles Lamb, James Boswell, and Donald and Mary Hyde. Here is a talk I gave on cataloging these libraries. Here is a recent blog post on Cataloguing And Recataloguing the Boswell Library.

After a few years' absence I'm back to cataloging other people's books on Library Thing. I'm cataloging the library of the American Lexicographer, Joseph E. Worcester.

About my libraryThe best way to view my library is to select one of my Collections. You can also use Tags and choose your preference of book collections, authors, or other subject matter. You won't find much fiction in my library, and not too many modern first editions. Most of the authors I collect are in that portion of heaven which A. Edward Newton called Biblio Bliss: William Shakespeare, Samuel Johnson, Mary Hyde, Logan Pearsall Smith, William Strunk, and Luther Brewer to name a few. Many of my collections overlap, while others, such as Books About Books, have offshoots.

My Books About Books Collection contains books about book collecting, bookselling, book publishing, bookbinding, bookplates, bibliography - virtually all aspects of books.

My Philology Collection contains books about the printed word, the spoken word, and the love of words: dictionaries, grammars, and books about English usage.

My Sentimental Library is a collection consisting of books formerly owned by authors and other people I collect, catalogues of their libraries, books by and about them, and autograph letters to or from them. You can view some of the marks of provenance of this collection at moislibrary.com.

One collecting offshoot of mine is to collect books formerly owned by authors who share my interests in books. E.g., Mary Hyde collected Samuel Johnson. While I don't have any books formerly owned by Samuel Johnson, I do have some books formerly owned by Mary Hyde.

best,
Jerry Morris
