Frederick Morgan Collection of Children's Books

This extensive collection of children's books and literature is based around the collection donated by Mr Frederick Morgan in 1954. The collection comprises mainly English works published before 1940 and is being actively developed. The Kingston Collection (a virtually complete set of novels by the author WHG Kingston) forms an adjunct to the Morgan Collection. More information and images from the collection are available in our online exhibition ' To all the Little Masters and to all the Little Misses'.
