The exhibition was held in the Rare Books Exhibition space, Sir Louis Matheson Library, Monash University from 10 October 2013 - 28 February 2014. Opening address given by Cathrine Harboe-Ree, University Librarian, Monash University Library. Every few years the Rare Books Collection stages an exhibition of “Recent acquisitions.” Included in the exhibition this time are examples of ephemera, Australian literature and history, children’s books and games, cookery, travel, the home, useful books, sheet music, and items from two world wars. Especially showcased are two significant recent donations. One is from our long-time supporter, Sandy Michell, who recently gave us most of the remainder of her significant collection of cookery books, and who continues to make generous donations of funds. The other is from Father Ivan Page who died in 2012. He was a parish priest in Bendigo, but had a long history of involvement in the world of art, literature and fine books.
