About the library: This is one wall in my home that is completely covered with book cases. I have two rooms completely filled with books. The book cases you are looking at, contain my Boudewijn Büch library. (He was a Dutch writer, TV personality and traveler. He died in 2002, aged 53.)
The case on the left contains all the books he has written or contributed to, the three others are filled with books from his personal library which was auctioned two years after his death. (He owned an amazing 100,000 books!). Emphasis in my library: travel books, geography and history. With a special taste for (leather) bound books and luxe editions, signed copies etc. At the moment I own 3,731 books. Since 2004 I’m buying about 500 books per year, so I have to move to a new house in a year or two… Don’t tell my wife!
