SMAD. An Organ of Student Opinion. 1935. Volume 6. Number 11.


"It's a revelation"; "If only three hours here were three years"; "A storehouse of literature's rich and wonderful legacy." These were among the remarks which the members of a party from the Literary Society discovered in the visitors' book at Turnbull Library on Tuesday of last week. And after listening to talks by Mr. Johannes Andersen and his assistant, and after examining and handling a few of the library's more valuable volumes, the sincerity and truth of these comments were driven home.

Mr. Andersen showed how the value of beautiful literature is enhanced by fine printing and binding. Here in New Zealand, he said, we were fortunate in having, through Mr. Turnbull's interest in New Zealand and then English literature, some of the most "beautiful" books in the world.
