Earlier this year we asked for you to help us celebrate the 100th anniversary year of the Loeb Classical Library by sending us pictures of your Loeb collections. We shared a batch of your pictures in the spring, and we’re back today with another bunch. Our sincere thanks to everyone who has sent in photos.
First up, a man we were thrilled to hear from, Mr. Charles Montgomery Burns, of Springfield. He keeps his Loeb volumes right by the hearth in his library. Here he is, pondering the classics with a nice snifter of something warm:

And here, top to bottom, are the personal collections of Ralph Aulenta, Maddy Bowman, and Alan Steele, a British Army Chaplain, who says he normally takes a couple of Loebs with him when deployed to hot and dusty places.
And here, in Egypt, at the Anglo-Egyptian Bookshop in Cairo, which was started in 1929 by the grandfather of the current owners Fady and Karim Greiss (who’s pictured here):
And here, another great Loeb display at Foyle’s Bookshop on Charing Cross Road in London:
And finally, from bookstores to home décor, here’s Martha Stewart putting Loeb volumes to work again, set off against a 1930s Chinese Chippendale-style fish tank showcasing a red mini-orchid:
Oh, and there’s also this:
Thanks again for helping us celebrate the Loeb Classical Library anniversary all this year. To another hundred!
