Would be fun to know what books you find in a library like you see on Downton Abbey

Last night I finished the Downton Abbey TV series.

Something I kept thinking during the series, any time a scene took place in the library, was… what book titles are on those shelves? Let’s face it, there are lots and lots of books on those shelves. The series ends about 1925. Those books seem to have been on those shelves for a while.

Three things I’d like to know;

1) About how many books did those big rich private libraries have?

2) Can I get a list of the titles?

3) What percentage of each language would a big private library contain?

Anyone else ever think of this kind of thing?

Enjoy life… eat out more often!
