Constructing a library is also a philosophical tasks, for books are philosophical objects. When writing about the tale of Apellicon’s recovery of the library of Aristotle and Theophrastus, Strabo provides the first expression ever of the notion of ‘bibliophile’, which he exemplifies in Apellicon of Theos himself, who did not succeed in establishing an authoritative edition of Aristotle of his own. The reason was, ên dè ho Apellikôn philóbiblos mâllon è philósophos (Geographia 13.1.54 C609).
