Books in Heaven

Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966), "A Young Novelist's Heaven," Daily Chronicle (March 18, 1930), rpt. in The Essays, Articles and Reviews of Evelyn Waugh, ed. Donat Gallagher (Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1984), pp. 65-66 (at 66):
No one will write any more books once they reach Heaven, but there is an excellent library, containing all the books written up to date, including all the lost books and the ones that the authors burned when they came back from the last publisher.

Johann Boxbarth (1671-1727), Bibliothek
