Australias greatest book collector, David Scott Mitchell, gave his extraordinary library and a bequest for its development to the people of Sydney and the world.

This is the first comprehensive account of his life and what, how, and why he collected, told through his books, reading, and contemporary correspondence.

Mitchells life and his collecting opens a window on the world of ideas, literature, libraries, and philanthropy in the nineteenth century.
