Recent acquisitions: Department of Printed Books: selected acquisitions, mainly from the period 1979-1985 Map Library
A PREVIOUS article (British Library Journal, v (1979), pp. 181-97) provided partial coverage for the period 1968-78, with the promise of a further instalment to include those items which were unavoidably omitted. This article completes the listing for the earlier period, but can give only a partial account of acquisitions over the past six years. These will be brought up to date in a later issue. The items selected are of particular biblographical interest or rarity.
