Treasures of Cambridge are to be catalogued for online access. The New Zealand Herald ran this story recently, detailing what has been found in the Cambridge University library tower, a "big Stalinist building of eight or nine storeys".
First editions of what are now classics abound among literary work that was once considered second-rate but is now highly valued. Jim Secord, "a professor of the history of science who has explored the contents of the tower" says:
"If you like browsing in old bookshops then this is about 10 times better."
