NB: When I left my job in the computer industry last December, my intent was to get caught up in my lists of books received as quickly as possible. Events have conspired to make that more difficult than I had envisioned, but that is still the plan. One of the events was a flood in my study caused by a pipe that burst while I was in Rotterdam. While, thanks to my wife & one of my sons, I only lost maybe 150 books out of a total maybe of 10,000 due to water damage – a list that will show up here as well at some point – the whole library is currently stored in cartons while we go through the painstaking process of reconstructing my study and acquiring some additional shelving.
