George Washington (1,200 books)
I think you also have to keep the time frame in mind. Today 1,200 books may not seem like a lot but back in Washington's day it probably was. I mean Louis XIV had a large library for his time (24 books) so I can see that 1,200 book library of George Washington's being considered large for the time.

Especially considering cheap paperbacks were not a thing.

Can't compare to Karl Lagerfeld!

My complete library as on date goes to 5142 books. 3641 books in e book format, and
1501 print books/ manuscripts. This also includes books/manuscripts I inherited from my father. To respect my laziness, we are not talking about my TBR.
