What was the passion of Horace Danby and how did he satisfy it?

Horace Danby was a good and respectable citizen. He normally remained hale and hearty except for the attacks of hay fever which he usually had in summers. But there was another aspect of his personality. He was not completely honest. If he had a passion for something, it was rare and expensive books. He loved them. To satisfy his passion, he used to rob a safe every year. Each year, he planned the robbery carefully and then would steal enough to last for twelve months. His passion led him to buy the books secretly through an agent and thus satisfy himself. He kept a track of upcoming books and planned robbery accordingly once a year. For the sake of books, he took the risk of robbing jewels from people’s safes and sold them to buy the books he loved through an agent.
