Abstract

The Stack Collection in Special Collections has a somewhat uninspiring name, which belies its very interesting contents. The collection contains post-1800 volumes, about 4000 books in total, made up of transfers from other libraries and general stack, donations, and purchases. Within the collection there are smaller collections of books, most notably books by or associated with John Evelyn (d. 1706), John Locke (d. 1704), Robert Graves (d. 1985), and Eric Gill (d. 1940). There is an assortment from commentaries to guide books, to modern literature and art books. This small Touring Club Italiano guidebook is the regional guide to Umbria, in the middle of the Italian boot. It contains detailed maps, accommodation recommendations, and places to visit.
