Private library[edit]

Where do we get the fact about his book collection weighing 26 tons? This section then goes onto say it 'contained hundreds of books'. 26 tons of paper is surely many thousands of books. So if it really weighed that much, the sentence should be updated to thousands. If it only contained books numbering in the hundreds, the weight fact should maybe be revisited, or at least given a reliable source.--duncan 18:38, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
