The accessioning of Robert Thompson’s bequest of books to the British Numismatic Society has just been completed. There are over 350 books with a strong emphasis on tokens – which significantly enlarges the library’s holding on this area of numismatic research.
A programme of conservation is also currently underway and the latest batch of books are back from the bookbinders. It’s great to see them repaired and ready for many more years of use. If visitors to the RNS/BNS library find a book that needs rebinding, then please bring it to the Librarian’s attention by leaving the book and a note on the Librarian’s desk.
