We are interested in the projected visit to be made by British librarians at Whitsuntide to the Brussels Institute of Bibliography. Unfortunately the tribulations of the past seven years have rudely interrupted the pleasant relations British librarians were establishing with their Continental brethren. Visits were paid by the “Easter Schools,” as they were called, of the L.A.A. to Brussels, Paris, and Holland in 1911, 1912, and 1913, and in 1914 their foreign friends came to London. The feature of these “schools” was its list of visits to carefully‐selected libraries, but there was also a social side which occupied a great part of each day. We understand that the visit at present in view will have a similar character. If the spirit of former visits can be recaptured, all who go will have reason to congratulate themselves.
