    Anyone else collect Rare books ?? Anyone else purchase Antique and Collectible books often ??
    >>> By the way, the antique and rare books have subtly different connotations .

    I consider myself a pragmatic collector, that is, I collect some rare books ( first editions ) about specialized/technical subjects in different areas, that besides, were a milestone in itselfs (( very useful knowledges, btw ))
    Let's say, without realizing myself, I am collecting books about the mountaineering exploits and ski exploits ( in multiple editions and in different languages) I begun to read antique books and couldn't stop :D I guess, I carry the collectors virus

    There is an essay called Why Collect Books about this strange virus that you can read in part :

    Courage Sparkchaser :rofl
