Latest issue of The Halcyon now available online

In this latest issue of The Halcyon, the bi-annual Friends of Fisher newsletter, the focus is not just on the library's gift-in-kind donations - rather, it examines donations in several ways. It focuses on recent donations, but also on gifts that have been recently "rediscovered" and "gifts within gifts," such as presenation copies. In short, it explores how recent and past gifts keep on giving to generations of researchers. The articles deal with a variety of materials spanning across all of the Fisher's collections, including modern manuscripts, medicine, bookplates, and correspondence from the Crimean, Boer and First World Wars.

The issue can be downloaded as a PDF direct from The Halcyon page on our web site, or via this link. Copies are also available at the Fisher reference desk.
