Pronounced: ak-uh-ruh-FOE-bee-uh, noun
Notes: An interesting word
The word bibliotaph means “one who hoards or hides away books”
Our word came into English in the early 1800s
Background / Comments
While I enjoy having books, I don’t think I qualify as a bibliotaph; I don’t think I “hoard” books or hide them away. The word comes from the Greek word biblion (book; really papyrus roll or strip of papyrus) and táphos (burial). If you see the word “Bible” in this word, you are right; it comes from the first Greek word (biblion).
