search for authors that have more than n books

I looked through some of the posts, but couldn't find a answer to my question. Can I search for only thoses authors (and then books) that have more than n books, where n would be a given number, eg. show me all books of all authors, of which I have more than 10 books in the library?
So, essentially do no show me authors that has 9 or less books in the library.

Does anybody get what I mean and is it possible?

You could use the Tag Browser
Expand Authors
Sort by Popularity
Then select each one in the group

Hi theducks,

I do not understand what you meant. How do I sort Authors by Popularity?
;-)
Oh forget it, I didn't see the buttons below, I was looking for a context menu.

Thanks, that was what I was looking for - almost.
I now want to combine that with a search.

Click to be Plus (or Minus), Hold down the control key and click any other items in any of those catagories OR
finish typing them in the search bar, being careful to not delete what is there
