Well, not really, but we do have the most works with an ultb tag right now, with 938.

To be honest, I know of at least two other libraries with more unique books than we have. As far as I know, the all time champ ultber is rixsal with 1982 unique titles. Being a world renowned specialist on escaped slave societies in the Caribbean and South America can get you a lot of obscure titles. I somehow doubt that they'll be joining the group, though. Another good ultb library is lycanthropist with 1694 unique titles. He's got a lot of marxist tracts from the 1930s and the like.

Let me know if you find anyone with more unique titles than rixsal -- or just more than 1000. As you can maybe guess, I collect that kind of information.

How can you tell how many unique titles someone has if they don't tag them ultb? From their profile page click on their library. Click to sort the library by shared. Click again to start with least shared rather than most shared. Scroll the pages until you come to the last page with a unique title. Add the number of unique titles on that page to the first number at the top of the page (e.g. 900-950). That's the number of unique titles.

Our ultb list isn't spotless. I'm sure the combiners will get some of them soon. But it's moderately clean. We really do have a lot of obscure books.

It seems that no one wants to talk to you now, johnandlisa. :D

Yep. Kind of takes the shine off of the bragging. :)

I think it's just because everyone is so busy manually entering their 5000 book collection of nineteenth century Scandinavian forestry manuals so they can say nyah, nyah. They'll be after me in a week or two.

I believe the correct phrase is "neener, neener"... ;-)>

958

Now 957 - somebody else added The Volcanic Eruptions of El Malpais.

Back to 958 - nobody else has Geology of the Littleton Quadrangle.

based on a quick library sort i seem to have 1004. i'm sure this isnt a 'pure' number -- although i've tried to be thorough in combining i've almost certainly missed some. and some arent books--a couple dozen are emphemera (programs, letters and the like) related to my key subjects, and 60 or so are related dvds. most of the u-neeks are obscure renaissance drama and shakespeare things.

#6 Ohh damn, I thought I had the Geology of the Littleton Quadrangle there for a minute but it turns out mine was the Geology of the Littleton Rectangle. So close!

Yeah, and there are dozens of copies of Geology of the Littleton Trapezoid. Darn!
