Über meine BibliothekI suppose I have three libraries. One is a library I share with my wife, about 1000 books--poetry, drama, fiction, nonfiction--ranging from antiquity to recent, mixing classics with modern genre fiction. Limited space forces us to cull items when we add new volumes.

The second is a private library of about 500 books, heavy in "great books" and academic studies of literature, history, and philosophy. This library includes 45 Loebs, the Variorum edition of Edmund Spenser, Bradley's _Shakespearean Tragedy_, Auerbach's _Mimesis_, and Davidson's _Actions and Events_.

The third library is the one I have posted on Library Thing. I started compiling it about four years ago. It comprises what I call "fine books," mainly from Easton Press, Limited Editions Club, Franklin Library, Heritage Press, and Folio Society. The books in my collection are generally smyth-sewn, illustrated, and leather bound, but not so expensively that they're out of my price range on eBay or Abe books. About a dozen are letter press. I have collected about 150 of these volumes so far.
