Jack London?

jul 15, 2014, 3:23 pm

It looks to me that the Huntington Library in California has London's library. Anyone know anything about it?

Huntington curator will be at RBS next week teaching a class - I'll query him on it!

Oh, actually it looks like they're pretty well cataloged, and should be able to be MARC-imported ...

That would be nifty… I rather adore London. But I'm not sure I can catalog 5,000 or 15,000 items…

Huntington has 1434, but their MARC downloader is being wonky. Will keep poking at.

Hmmm, I live pretty close to Jack London's place ... and ... Tools of my Trade is in our library system ... I wonder if the MARC downloader at the Huntington is better in 2021 than it was in 2014...

>6 benjclark: - Well they're up to 1518 records seven years later but their MARC downloader still seems to be broken (I just get an empty file every time).

>7 JBD1: That sounds about right.

Tools of my Trade arrived. The author says London's library was 15,000 volumes! This is a look at the annotated volumes in the Huntington's large collection (and a few in private hands.) Hamilton describes around 400 volumes in his book (according to the dust jacket flap). David Mike Hamilton is a former curator at the Huntington, so I imagine it is *very* thorough. As an exemplar of the genre, it's really engaging and well organized.
