About My Library
A mix of Classics, Orientalistik (Arabic, Persian, Syriac, Hebrew and Armenian with some Turkic and Indian materials), Language materials and general literary works. There is also a reasonable collection of books on Central Asian history.

The Classics materials are mostly related to Late Antique historiography, rhetoric and Greek drama (with a good uncatalogued section on satyr drama).

The Arabic section has a number of works on Nabati poetry, a particular interest of mine. These, like most of the library, are still in storage, however, and are not yet all catalogued.

The Library catalogue is divided into several collections (books can appear in several):-
Classics and Byzantine on the Graeco-Roman world;
Orientalistik for oriental and near-Eastern cultures and languages and for biblical studies;
Linguistics and Language for non-Classical linguistics;
General library contains all non-classified including literature and poetry;
Academic and Historiographical contains books on literary theory, post-Classical historiography etc.;
Oceanography materials for offshore work;
Sheet Music is small but self-explanatory;
Frances' books is a collection of books that I gave to or were left to me by my dearest friend, a victim of cancer.

All catalogued books are paper books I own or owned at the time of cataloguing. Electronic books are not listed in this catalogue (a subset are catalogued under the catalogue name shikari-electronica).

Oh, and I'm a terrible Loeb Classical Library addict.
About Me
Orientalist and Late Antiquarian. My MA dissertation was on Procopius' Sasanian ethnography and its echoes of Herodotus. Current work is on pre-Islamic Arabia.
