Over mijn bibliotheek
Interests evolve, of course. Somewhat to my surprise, over the past few years I've been drawn into the net of "modern first" collecting, with a focus on my favorite authors and books (which do include some of the "high spots"): Tolkien, Haggard, Buchan, W.H. Hodgson, M.R. James, E.R. Eddison, Conan Doyle, Kipling, R.L. Stevenson, Stoker, Wodehouse, Sapper, Chandler, Agatha Christie. At the other end of my collector's interest is my collection of 16th century antiquarian literature, with high points in Sir Thomas Browne, Robert Burton, Milton, Shakespeare and Izaak Walton.
Over mij
College, which ought to have led me to become an English lit scholar, instead took me to law school, where I learned just enough real law to become a humdrum "in-house" corporate lawyer. One great blessing of this unplanned vocation has been to enable me to buy and read all (or nearly all) the books I want, which is probably the next best thing to literary scholarship, with none of the publish-or-perish nonsense. I'm also married with two young daughters.
