Sponsor a Book update

Now in its sixth year, the Library’s Sponsor-A-Book Appeal has helped conserve many of the Society’s rare books collection, writes Michael McKimm

jklhRecently, a generous donation from an anonymous sponsor has allowed us to restore Robert Bakewell’s An Introduction to Geology and Volume IV of Arthur Smith Woodward’s Catalogue of the fossil fishes in the British Museum (1901), both of which were in serious disrepair and have now been returned to their former glory while preserving all original material.

The Library is also grateful to The John Daniels Fund of the London Branch of the Open University Geological Society, which has been used to sponsor William Topley’s Geology of the Weald (1875) as a lasting tribute to that Society’s late treasurer John Daniels FGS.
