The OF Blog: My collection keeps growing

My collection keeps growing



One of the reasons I'm not caring as much for the new and tinny-shinny books is that I've decided to engage in a personal collector's challenge for 2011, acquiring as many of the Easton Press 100 Greatest Books catalog as possible.  I'm currently at 19, with 5 more due to arrive in the next week or so.  



Thought a few of you might enjoy looking at the spines of these books.  Since each is quite heavy, I've cleared space on my maple bookcase for these (and a few others).


As a bonus, you can also see the full Easton Press edition of Edward Gibbon's The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire and the Folio Society's four-volume set of Ancient Empires.

And if you're wondering if I'm reading any of these, of course.  I have bought these in very good condition, but I'm not going to have a panic attack if there's a scuff mark on the gilt edges, since these I plan to keep until I'm old and/or dead.
