Nice. I'm jealous. The biggest collections I've seen are Otto's and my friend Bob Adey's in England.

Lance Casebeer and Bob Samoian had large collections but I don't know how many they had. Not 59,000, I'll bet. Bill has that many in his laundry room.

I've never counted, but I'm sure I'm a few tens of thousands short. George Kelley, on the other hand, . . .

Let's see...I have 5 bookcases, each with 8 shelves, each shelf holds 18 books. Is that 59,000? Pretty close, I bet.

Wouldn't you know George would get in there. Way to go. We went booking in Seattle once, he always found the best stuff.
