Rare volumes offer insight- Charleston Post and Courier

Outdoor enthusiasts and history buffs soon will be able to peruse more than 2,000 rare angling and sporting books at the College of Charleston’s library.

The collection, compiled by Dr. Greville Haslam, contains volumes published between the 17th and early 20th centuries. Howard and Mary Phipps donated the collection to the Marlene and Nathan Addlestone Library, said Jenny Fowler, library director of advancement. Library staffers and archivists are preparing the collection now, and an exhibit of some of the books will open to the public in February during the Southeastern Wildlife Expo, she said.
