April is the cruellest month



We'll be celebrating the acquistion of our millionth volume at the library this afternoon. As you may guess, the millionth volume is a copy of T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland--a donated first edition, however, instead of a trade paper like my own.

Until then, we'll be at the Doctor Faustus colloquium elsewhere on campus.

Hope everyone else has a day just as good!

Sounds like an interesting event.

Congratulations! That sounds like an impressive collection based both on the sheer numbers and the quality of that one millionth volume.

JCR said...

Wow, who donated the first ed? How much might it be worth?

A professor emeritus at the university, Julian D. Mason. I don't have a clue how much it'd be worth, but I imagine a lot considering that it was number 22.

A belated congratulations! And what an exciting book you get to make it a million. Hope the celebration was fun.
