Fears for Murdoch’s books

Charles Davis writes: “from
The BBC:

There are fears a collection of 1,000 books that belonged to novelist Dame Iris Murdoch may leave the country. The books are being sold by the novelist’s widower, Professor John Bayley, who said it was “painful” to sell his late wife’s library but he had no room for them in his Oxford home.

The collection is on sale for £150,000 and there are fears it may go to the United States which, along with
Japan, has shown some interest.”
