    That's an impressive library.

    I have a very small collection of books and only one that appears to be missing from your collection

    S.A. Mitchell, Eclipses of the Sun(1923) (HC)

    I recommend this book for optics -
    Telescope Optics : A Comprehensive Manual for Amateur Astronomers
    by Harrie G. J. Rutten (Author), Martin A. M. Van Venrooij (Author)
    https://www.amazon.com/Telescope-Opt.../dp/0943396182

    Can't help you with mounts.

    I love this thread The man needs help, and all of you are recommending additional books. “You’re an alcoholic, you say? Check out this cocktail I made”
    Kidding aside, that is one impressive collection.
    Properly collimated cornea-lens-vitreous optical apparatus, projecting on retinal sensor slightly limited by deuteranomaly, feeding through stock optic nerves into functional primary cortex, processed through frequently misfiring and buggy integrative cortex.
    Other instruments: Skyline 8" Dobsonian; Celestron Omni XLT 120 w upgraded focuser and diagonal on Stellarvue M2C mount; Oberwerk 25x100 IF; Celestron SkyMaster 8x56. Main EPs: ES 82 24mm and 11mm, Celestron Luminos 19mm, Meade UWA 14mm, Meade HD-60 6.5mm. Filters: UHC, 13%, blue. Finders: RACI, Telrad, RDF, reticle.

    Wow! Wow! Wow!.
    I hope some lucky kids get inspired by the content in these books. However, they are all busy looking down (in their cell phones) than at the wonders in the sky.

    That's some list! I have a fair few but not even close to that.

    I got three good ones for Christmas:

    Mission Moon 3-D - David J. Eicher and Brian May
    The 100 Best Astrophotography Targets - Ruben Kier
    Your Place in the Universe: Understanding Our Big, Messy Existence - Paul M. Sutter

    It was a good Christmas!

    Regards

    Graeme
