Walker Collection:
Recently Added Textbooks

The Walker Collection catalog in its various formats was completed in 2001. Occasionally, donations have been received. While the bulk of these have been books used or published in Indiana, marking them for addition to the Floyd Family Collection, some of the books fit more properly in the Walker Collection, which is national in scope with an emphasis on early and scarce schoolbooks. Such additions will be reported in this file rather than in the already complete versions of the catalog.

This file contains 28 entries. All entries are arranged by main entry, title, and date of publication.
