Summary
"The Tasmaniana Library of the State Library of Tasmania has been developed on the foundation of a large and important donation of books from the private collection of William Walker. Walker's collection was presented to the Tasmanian Public Library in two discrete gifts in 1923/24 and in 1933, the year of his death. The many thousands of volumes presented by Walker represented an enormous enrichment of the impoverished library's collections, particularly in the field of Australiana and Tasmaniana."--page 107.
