Many volumes have been added to the Library during the past summer. Most have been of a miscellaneous nature, and a large percentage have been books presented by foreign publishing houses. Of the private donations the most important is the gift from the Gurney estate of 1200 volumes, an addition to the series of gifts made possible by the will of the late Professor Ephraim Whitman Gurney '52. About 100 volumes on the catacombs of Rome have been presented by John Harvey Treat '62. A gift of 25 volumes on Dante, including several of the early editions, has been received from A. C. White '02, and a set of the original "Tattlers" of Addison and Steele has been secured.
