Rare books to help Turnbull celebrate century

Mar 15th, 2018 | By | Category: Radio News

Books over 500 years old and valued at nearly $200,000 have been donated to the Alexander Turnbull library.

The 20 books were donated by the estate of John Barton, a collector from New Plymouth, who died last year.

Curator of rare books Anthony Tedeschi says the collection is extra special because of its timing.
