Recent Acquisitions Seven

Every few years the Rare Books Collection stages an exhibition of “Recent acquisitions.”

Included in the exhibition this time were examples of ephemera, Australian literature and history, children’s books and games, cookery, travel, the home, useful books, sheet music, and items from two world wars.

Especially showcased were two significant donations. One was from our long-time supporter, Sandy Michell, who had recently given us most of the remainder of her significant collection of cookery books, and who continued to make generous donations of funds.

The other is from Father Ivan Page who died in 2012. He was a parish priest in Bendigo, but had a long history of involvement in the world of art, literature and fine books.

The exhibition was seen from 10 October 2013 - 28 February 2014 at the Rare Books Exhibition space, Level 1, ISB wing, Sir Louis Matheson Library, Clayton campus, Monash University.
