A peek inside the Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection
Part of Sydney Rare Book Week
Since the 1980s, the CSL&RC has quietly and diligently amassed a collection focusing on the post-1788 history of the home in Australia, a collection that covers a range of material culture formats. Architectural pattern books, furniture design books, manufacturers’ trade catalogues and sample books published in both Australia and overseas shine a light on our houses, interiors and gardens. Many of these publications are not held by any other Australian library.
This event is part of Sydney Rare Book Week 2019, co-ordinated by the State Library of NSW.
