A REPLYTO AN OLD QUESTION
Someone, I cannot now find the question, asked me on this blog how many books I have in my personal library. The answer is very few, perhaps 1500-1600, or so, down-sized from when I lived in Massachusetts. That is a very small library for a professor my age. On the other hand, I have read almost all of them. I have them organized in five groups, each separately alphabetized: General, Economics, Marx, Kant, and Afro-American Studies. There is also a small Mathematics section, and of course all the music I acquired during my viola study and quartet playing. Oh, and also a section devoted to various editions of the books I have published or in which I have published. That is reasonably large.
