Bookmen of the British Museum

Bookmen of the British Museum When, eleven years ago, I retired from the service of the Trustees of the British Museum, I was honoured by two or three invitations to write my memoirs. I declined, on two grounds that I had been born in neither of the purples, the princely or the proletariate and for at that time young people in their early twenties were publishing their autobiographies that I did not think I was young enough. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

I declined, on two grounds that I had been born in neither of the purples, the princely or the proletariate and for at that time young people in their early twenties were publishing their autobiographies that I did not think I was young enough.
