By God's Gift I am what I am presented by Shane Carmody

By God's Gift I am what I am: Relics of the Library of Carlos Barron Lumsden.
In 1923 an article in the Melbourne Herald described the second hand department of Cole's book Arcade. Among the books mentioned were volumes from the Library of Carlos Barron Lumsden. Just how Lumsden's library came to be sold in the second hand department of Cole's Book Arcade is the subject of this talk and it is a tale of broken dreams, desperation, and tragedy - themes well known to all true book collectors.
