Yesterday afternoon, Jerry Morris, a book collector and researcher in the Tampa Bay area, was kind enough to drop me a line to say he’d linked to my Hurlothrumbo entry in the Library Thing catalog of James Boswell’s library. While I was there, I visited his profile page. Jerry, who goes by the handle “moibibliomaniac,” currently has 2,145 books cataloged. Be sure to read his “About my library” section, which includes information about his various collections. Books from the eighteenth century, books about books, books about words, and books formerly owned by authors are some of his interests.
