Seen in another bookshop (but not photographed, and badly remembered) - a book with a turquoise (and brown?) cover, written by E... H... (an architect), with a title something like "memory is a place", cost £25. I happened to dip into the chapter/essay on a list of the contents of a Kunstkabinett, written in 1607 and "lost" until after WWII. The entire process of making such a collection, and the way this particular list was written, makes me want to go back to the description, and to the rest of the book.
