    From memory close to 100 I think. First bought a lot of technical guides which collect dust now, meanwhile prefer to buy books of photographers. Have Max Pam and Robert Frank on my wish list. I am often annoyed that picture books become out-of-print rather early.

    Was surprised to to count 62 (I thought I had much less). Roughly half on photographers and the other half technical books - some of which are close to 80 years old!

    83 books, from technical to specific photographer monographs or portfolios.
    I´m also running out of space for more.

    Did you count your own?

    A quick review indicates 28, but that includes a couple of duplicate Darkroom Dataguides.

    There may very well be a few more, in slightly less accessible locations.

    I don't know. Quite a few, I think, but they've all been stored away in boxes since I got married in 1985. Making a long story short here...

    I had never counted and I'm shocked. I stopped counting at 100, but it's less than 250. :o

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    I voted <25, though I did not actually count.

    Do you want to know which ones, or just numbers?
