BOOKS: Wisdom of the West by Bertrand Russell

As for herds of deer, books need to be 'culled'.  I practice what I preach and give away books I will never read again and paperbacks turned yellow.  Some I treasure and have re-bound - very good book binders are Shepherds in London:

Here is an example, Wisdom of the West by Bertrand Russell, published in 1959, edited by Paul Foulkes, beautifully designed by Edward Wright, ten illustrations by John Piper, published by Macdonald: London in 1959 & 1960.
