Personal library of Richard A. Macksey

The personal library of retired John Hopkins University Humanities professor Richard A. Macksey, housed in his home in Maryland, USA. Comprised of over 70,000 books which include many precious copies such as Proust’s copy of Swann’s Way, and rare first editions from William Faulkner, Henry James and Edith Wharton, Professor Macksey’s library is indeed impressive. To focus on building a bookish sanctuary in one’s home as comprehensively as this is to show the world that literature is the most important thing in one’s life.Via
