The formation of a regular Library may be said to have commenced in the year 1801, at which time and in succeeding years presentations and bequests of books, often in considerable numbers, were made to the College-the principal donors being Dr. Baillie, Sir Everard Home, Sir Charles Blicke, the widow of Mr. Sharp, Sir Ludford Harvey, Dr. Fleming, Mr. Cotton, and Mr. Long. The Court of Assistants also directed from time to time the expenditure of small sums of money for the purchase of books, and eventually voted a sum of £100 per annum for this purpose. Sir Charles Blicke, in the year 1816, invested the sum of £300, the proceeds of which sum were to be devoted to the same object. Some of the purchases thus made were considerable, as in the cases of the Libraries of Mr. Pitt, Mr. St. Andre, and Sir Anthony Carlisle, and books of importance were added at the recommendation of the Conservator of the Museum and others. In this way a Library of considerable value was gradually accumulated, but it was only accessible to a limited number of persons. In 1827 active steps were taken to render it more generally useful, and with this object catalogues and extensive lists of desirable acquisitions were ordered to be prepared. Large sums of money were also expended during this and the ensuing two years, amounting in the aggregate to nearly £6000. A Librarian was appointed, and in 1828 the Library, then containing 10,500 volumes, was thrown open to members of the College, and all other persons engaged in the pursuit of natural science were freely admitted. This large collection, thus opened, offered great facilities to the studious. By means of extensive additions, the collection was well nigh complete in works on Medicine and Surgery, both domestic and foreign, whilst it was also very rich in publications relating to the accessory sciences. The transactions of Academies and Societies, and the collection of periodical publications in general, owing to their completeness, and the difficulty with which access can be obtained to this class of literature elsewhere than in large libraries, formed a valuable feature. The maintenance of the Library from that time to the present has involved a very cousiderable expenditure of the funds of the College. It has been the object of those to whose care it has been confided to ensure the completeness and excellence of the collection, and great facilities of reference have been provided by the preparation of additional catalogues and indexes of subjects. During the last year there have been added to the Library 423 volumes (comprising 98 new works) and 122 tracts, pamphlets, essays, reports, and theses. The entire collection now contains 34,754 volumes, 14,037 works, and 37,367 tracts, pamphlets, essays, reports, and theses.

The following is a list of the donations that have been presented to the Library during the year 1873-74, viz.—

Dr. Grimshaw. The Influence of Digitalis on the Weak Heart of Typhus Fever. Dr. Fayrer. European Child-Life in Bengal; and the Nature and Physiological Action of the Poison of Indian Venomous Snakes, by Drs. Brunton and Fayrer. L'Académie des Sciences de Paris. Comptes Rendus, 1873-74.
