Excerpt from Women's City Club Magazine, Vol. 12: February, 1938

Many of the papers and letters of Sir joseph Banks form another of the manu script collections. Sir joseph Banks was president of the Royal Society for many years. He sailed with Captain Cook on his first voyage around the world. Al most every voyage oi exploration set ting out from England in the last half of the eighteenth century was outfitted by him or he had a scientist aboard.

He was responsible for the voyage of the Bounty. He was interested in many phases of English life - coinage, wool and sheep, insects, drainage, antiqui ties, everything.

Two copies of the first folio edition of Shakespeare's works are in the library and one copy of each of the second, third and fourth folio editions. Old Eng lish documents - indentures, tax - lists and wills - dating from Shakespeare's time and earlier, form an interesting back ground here. Other early English drama fists are represented, too, like Shirley and Dekker and Ben jonson, with single plays of early edition or in early col lections of plays.
