Content Roundup – Second Week – June 2019

[9] p., Treasure Island

As June’s rains bring new flowers, so newly digitized materials bring new readers and researchers. A number of newly digitized resources are available this week including more Irish music from the Philadelphia Ceili Group, two maps of Cuba from the John F. Smith, III and Susan B. Smith Antique Map Collection, as well more dime novels and story papers including a very rare version of Treasure Island from the Oglivie’s Toy Books series, published in conjunction with a now lost silent film.
