Albert Schweitzer’s messy desk

Several bibliobloggers have posted pictures of their tidy or not-so-tidy desks. Chris Tilling has offered his own amusing contribution, and he provides a nice quotation on the state of Albert Schweitzer’s room while Schweitzer was writing his classic work The Quest of the Historical Jesus (1906): “Books were stacked everywhere in his room, including the floor, and those who came to see him had to edge their way perilously along the narrow waterways between tall islands of books.”
