The Life and Times of David Scott Mitchell,
| David Scott Mitchell was one of Australia's greatest philanthropists. Upon his death, he donated his tremendous library to the people of Sydney. Though he was often labeled a recluse, Mitchell's character can be understood by examining his book collection, which served as his personal library. Book Life: The Life and Times of David Scott Mitchell, by Eileen Chanin, is the first comprehensive account of his life and collecting, told through books, readings, and contemporary correspondence.
