The images in this gallery are from photographs taken of original illustrations in various publications held in the Rare Books and Special Collections of the University of Newcastle Library, in particular The Bishop's Library. The Bishop's Library is a collection of books dating from 1584 that was established by the second Bishop of Maitland, Dr. James Murray (1865-1909) and substantially augmented by his successor, Dr. P.V. Dwyer (1909-1931). The Bishop's Library was donated to the University of Newcastle Library in 1997 to mark the sesqui-centenary of the Catholic Diocese of Maitland. GRIT would like to acknowledge the assistance of Gionni Di Gravio, University Archivist and Lyn Keily, Special Collections Librarian in selecting books from the Bishop's Library for this project of enriching the GRIT website.
