The F W Boreham Book Collection at Dunedin Public Libraries

Barbara Frame wrote an article on Boreham book collections for Nga Purongo: New Zealand Libraries-The Journal for Library & Information Management, Vol 49, No. 12, March 2005.

Here is the summary to give the gist of the article:

“The works of F.W. Boreham (1871-1959) are of growing interest to collectors worldwide. The small town of Mosgiel, near Dunedin, was for several years Boreham's home and provided the inspiration for much of his writing. The Mosgiel Library's incomplete collection has been added to and developed into a special collection on permanent display.”
