About My Library
I divide my books into 4 broad categories: Literature, History, Religion, and Commentary/Travel/Reference. I have a large Folio Society collection, in both literature and history. Am a fan of Anthony Powell, and have extensive collection of Powellania. I have divided my history books into 3 broad categories: ancient, Byzantine and modern. I use the term "Byzantine" rather than, say, "Middle Ages," because 1) Byzantine history is a particular interest of mine, and 2) it covers the entire period from Late Antiquity to 1453. I stretch my categorization a bit to include everything up to the European discovery of the New World. Everthing afterwards, is classified as "modern," and then broken down to European, American, Asian, African, etc. I also maintain a growing collection of books on the Orthodox Christian faith, both history and theology. I have only just started cataloguing, but I expect the final number of books to be about 1,800.
