Every few years the Library stages an exhibition of material recently acquired for the Monash Rare Book Collection. The focus of collecting in 2009 was mainly the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, reflecting current trends in scholarship at Monash. We see in this exhibition material of interest to the student of popular culture, Australian history and literature, children's books and games. There are also some pre-1800 items from the collection of the late Professor Harold Love, a scholar of the Restoration and of 19th century Australian drama and member of the Monash University English Department.
Exhibition opening: Opened by Professor Max King, PVC, Research & Research Training, Monash University.
Curator : Richard Overell, Rare Books Librarian.
When:1 April - 31 May 2009
