I have read various accounts that his own personal collection included between 8,000 and 9,000 titles.  I actually came across a 441 page pdf document today that has a complete list of all the books that he owned. This document is from the JFK Library in Boston and the number that they quote is 7,368 titles. To see a composite record by James D. Brasch and Joseph Sigman click here.
