A small collection of books and pamphlets on the subject of books and publishing. The collection focuses mainly on book production but also covers the history of printing and publishing houses such as the Oxford University Press and Collins. It was donated to The Mitchell Library in 1964 as a memorial to Charles Morris who, for many years, was the manager of the Scottish branch of the Oxford University Press.
