Come and hear the story behind the books from the exhibition The Invention of Melbourne: A Baroque Archbishop and a Neo-Gothic Architect to be launched on 31 July. Drawn from the library of James Goold, first Catholic Bishop of Melbourne, the books are just a sample of one of the finest libraries assembled in colonial Melbourne. Shane Carmody will tell the story of Goold and his fabulous library through the books, their authors and publishers.
