An Infinity of Things

By | From the Collections

Referred to in previous blog posts, Frances Larson’s An Infinity of Things: How Sir Henry Wellcome Collected the World (OUP, 2009) was launched last week at a reception in the Wellcome Library.

The book explores Wellcome’s life through the story of his collections and draws heavily on our resources, particularly Wellcome’s own personal papers.

An Infinity of Things has already drawn favourable reviews from (amongst others) the Literary Review, The Sunday Times and New Scientist, and offers the clearest account we have to date on Wellcome and his collection.
