Welcome to Malcolm Lowry's Library
I have set this blog up to sit alongside my main Malcolm Lowry blog in order to allow readers a chance to take a dip into Malc's library.
Malcolm Lowry's Library is based on the list of books held in boxes 53-56 of the Malcolm Lowry Collection at the University Of British Columbia (UBC).
The monographs and periodicals in Malcolm Lowry's Library have been divided into 2 groups by the UBC: the first contains items marked "Lowry", items dedicated to the Lowrys and gift volumes from Malcolm to Margerie and from Margerie to Malcolm; the second contains miscellaneous works of interest to Lowry.
I will gradually work my way through the Library detailing something about the author of each book, providing a brief synopsis of each book and posting any relevant images. Hopefully, it will give some insight into what the importance of each book may have been for Malc.
