A Terrible Hoarder of Books

Herbert H. Huxley, "John Enoch Powell and Vergil, Aeneid 6.86-87," Vergilius 44 (1998) 24-27 (at 24-25):
To my regret I never took up the offer Enoch made to me in a letter dated 27 January 1982 that I should spend an hour or two at his London home looking over his shelves. Confessing himself a terrible hoarder of books, he ended thus: "If you succeeded in dissolving my attachment to some of the volumes, you would be my wife's friend for ever."
