I could use a set of shelves like this, Tom.
Tom Wilson: I'm sure one of your local craftsmen could knock up a set in no time smile

Nowadays it'd all be on a kindle I suppose..
Tom Wilson: Not just yet, Chris - in the UK e-book sales are only about 20% of total book sales.

I wonder how many have been read, Tom
Tom Wilson: Recently - I'd guess not many, Lisl - but when the family had the house I think that quite a lot of them would be read.
I was thinking the same as Lisl.
Tom Wilson: See my response to Lisl smile

Ces livres sont magnifiques
Tom Wilson: Très belles reliures!
a fine, tight crop, Tom. i love this shot.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.
Looks like my good friend's collection.
Tom Wilson: S/he must be a bibliophile smile
There must be thousands and thousands of old books in the shelves of the libraries in stately homes, most of which have probably never been opened.
Tom Wilson: At least, not opened recently, Brian - but I think the original families probably used them a lot.
Who would dare to remove one to read and spoil the effect
Tom Wilson: Yes, I would like to browse!
we have to take photos of books for future generations Tom... nicely framed....petersmile
Tom Wilson: I think they're going to be around for many years to come, Peter.

These books look well organised and makes a great picture. I would like to spend time here.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis - unfortunately it wasn't possible to browse smile
