The Condition of Book Stock Comments

The Condition of Book Stock Comments Mr. Carter dislikes grubby books. So do I. I regret very much that it is not yet possible for me to assert that my own libraries at Cambridge contain none. All our fiction stocks, for example, and the junior stocks at two branch libraries, could be in much better condition. We are steadily improving them but a lot still remains to be done. I believe that our experience is not unrepresentative. At present we spend five shillings per head of population on our library service. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Mr. Carter dislikes grubby books. So do I. I regret very much that it is not yet possible for me to assert that my own libraries at Cambridge contain none. All our fiction stocks, for example, and the junior stocks at two branch libraries, could be in much better condition. We are steadily improving them but a lot still remains to be done. I believe that our experience is not unrepresentative. At present we spend five shillings per head of population on our library service.
