You might be a numismatic bibliophile... if some shelves of numismatic books and catalogues you were standing in front of collapsed, knocking you to the floor, cutting your leg, and destroying a chair that had been there.
Ouch! That hurts! I was nearly flattened myself by a rickety bookcase in a used book store. But what a way for a bibliophile to go! If you end up in bibliophile heaven, it might look like this. -Editor
No, that's not my numismatic library. It's the Philosophical Hall at the Strahov Monastery in Prague. Built in 1782, it contains more than 42,000 volumes covering themes from philosophy, astronomy, mathematics, history, and philology.
So who will be the first to send us a photo of their numismatic library? -Editor
