Books for the Profession: The Library of the Supreme Court of VictoriaBy Sue Reynolds
The Library of the Supreme Court of Victoria was founded in 1853. Its founder was Sir Redmond Barry K.B., K.C.M.G., a judge of the Supreme Court and a bibliophile. Barry’s interest in books prompted his close and leading involvement in the creation of libraries and other major public institutions for the new, thriving Colony of Victoria.
This book recounts the drama and intrigue of the Supreme Court Library’s founding and development from its beginnings to its rebirth as the Law Library of Victoria. The Library’s story will appeal to readers who are interested in colonial, library and legal history.
