Description : Excerpt from A Catalogue of the Library Formed by Edward Arnold Part from the necessity, for many reasons, of having a catalogue of my father's library, just as my sister and I had a catalogue of his French furniture (so ably compiled by Mr. Frank Rutter), it has also been made as a souvenir of the happy hours we spent together looking at the books he loved so much. Tell me, says a Spanish proverb, what books a man reads, and I will tell you what he is and a perusal of the catalogue shows and reflects, more truly. His exquisite and refined taste and foresight, than anything I can write. My father always preferred quality to quantity, and therefore it is not what the world would call a large library.

Description : Excerpt from Supplementary Catalogue of the Library of the Parliament of Victoria The Library Committee having requested me, while Parliamentary Librarian, to undertake the preparation of a Supplementary Catalogue of books added to the Library since 1864, it has been my endeavor, in carrying out their wishes, to perform the task entrusted to me with accuracy and fidelity. In the following pages, the names of the different authors are arranged alphabetically; and where a work has been published anonymously, the title has been entered in a way to indicate the subject-matter of the book. The alphabetical method of arrange ment was adopted at the suggestion of the Library Committee, who considered that form to be the simplest and most convenient for the ordinary purposes of reference. It was originally my intention to have inserted, not only the room and compartment, but also the shelf in which every book is to be found but the Committee, while approving of the plan, were of opinion that the publication of these details would unnecessarily prolong and increase the labor of the work. There were similar reasons against the preparation of a Classified Catalogue. The delay in the present issue has arisen, partly from a desire on my own part to render it as correct as possible, for which purpose I was obliged, in a large number of cases, to undertake the tedious and laborious process of referring to the books themselves and partly from causes over which I had no control. The postponement of the publication, however, has enabled me to bring the Catalogue down to the end of January in the present year. I have appended a list of the additions to the Library since the earlier sheets were printed off, and have also added a list of the newspapers and periodicals currently received, and a copy of the Rules for the Regulation of the Library.

Description : The frontiers of religion and science have always been pushed forward by curious and obsessed individuals, like: the monk who kept banned books in a secret library under the nose of the pope; the explorers who searched for the lost tribes of Israel but found a new continent instead; the eccentric doctor and a mad monk who intuited scientific truths well before future generations would prove their theories correct; the archaeologists who discovered the goddess just in time for feminism; the utopians who never quite found what they were looking for; and a current flock of priests and nuns who go wherever knowledge takes them. It is a delicious quirk of history that individuals dismissed by their contemporaries as eccentrics and troublemakers are often those with the most impact on the world. Curious Obsessions in the History of Science and Spirituality is a captivating look at the famous and the forgotten who emerged in times of extreme change and social disruption to change science and spirituality for ever. During our current Covid19 pandemic, this collection is highly relevant to a world still seeking novel answers to the human condition and also drawn to old theories long ago debunked.
