A Disney Production

Yesterday, we posted pictures of the Melland Library being readied for transport to an outstore.  Today is the turn of the Strutt Library, an extraordinary assemblage of books collected by the eponymous family of industrialists.  The library contains a great wealth of sources of interest for the study of Derbyshire history, and a great deal besides.  Take, for instance, this: John Disney’s 1729 description of the various legal codes dealing with unspeakable behaviour.
