Nicholas Barker, editor of The Book Collector, described the late John Emmerson as ‘one of the great book collectors of our time’. In 2015, the John Emmerson collection, comprising over 5,000 early English books, with a particular emphasis on the English Civil War, was donated to the State Library of Victoria. This session will look at some of the highlights from the Emmerson Collection.
Richard Overell was until the end of 2014 the Rare Books Librarian at Monash University Library. He now works at State Library Victoria helping to catalogue the John Emmerson Collection.
