Description

This collection of children’s books contains about 2,000 items, mainly dating from before 1940. They were built up over a period of time by bequest, donation and purchase and, as such, do not represent any significant individual collection. The titles to 1850 have a detailed listing by the noted children’s book historian Marjorie Moon (1908-1996) which is available to view in the library.
