Abstract

1. To talk on London collections is a most ambitious project if construed in its widest terms, since there is hardly a library of any size anywhere which would not include some books or other material on London. I am, however, taking a much more restricted view. I propose to confine myself to collections in this country whose primary interest is London or a geographical part of it. By London I mean the administrative area of the County of London. And by collection I mean a systematic assemblage of books, &c., adequately arranged, catalogued, classified, and so on, with a trained and knowledgeable staff to exploit it.
