From “Unpacking my library”

Property and possession belong to the tactical sphere. Collectors are people with a tactical instinct; their experience teaches them that when they capture a strange city, the smallest antique shop can be a fortress,the most remote stationary a key position.How many cities have revealed themselves to me in the marches I undertook in the pursuit of books!
