A selection of 491 volumes of 19th- and 20th-century editions of classical Greek texts and works relating mainly to classical philology, with a number of volumes in modern Greek, from the library of Professor A.J.

This collection, which reflects the donor's special interest in Linear B script and early Greek authors, was presented in 1981.
