THE Collection here catalogued was presented to the City 
of Gloucester by Councillor C. H. Dancey on the 
31st of May, 191 1, the Minutes of the City Council of that date 
recording the proceedings as follows : — ^'^l^>.i^iO 

AT A MEETING of the Council of the City of Gloucester, 
held at the Guildhall, on Wednesday, the 31st day of 
May, 191 1. 


The Mayor stated that it was the nth Anniversary of the 

j^ opening of the Gloucester Pubhc Library, and therefore he 

"5 thought it appropriate that he should at once read a letter 

pi which he had that morning received from Councillor C. H. 

Dancey : — 


6, MrDLAJTD Road, 

-■' Glottcestee, 

4 31st May, 1911. 

^ Dear Me. Mayoe, 

^ At a Meeting arranged by the Bristol and Gloucestershire 

Archaeological Society and held at the Guildhall, on the 16th 

! January last, Mr. Roland Austin (the Librarian of the Gloucester 

Public Library) read a very interesting paper on " Some Gloucester 
shire Books and their Writers " ; and, after referring to the books 
^ and pamphlets in the Reference Library and explaining how they 

sS had been acquired, he intimated that if Citizens and others would 

» allow him to look over books which they did not want to keep, 

.■ he might find some which woiild be worth preserving in the 

i!^ Reference Library. 

As you are aware, I took much interest in the establisliment 
(N, of the Gloucester Public Library. The Public Libraries Act, 1892, 

<o was adopted on 29th May, 1894, and came into operation in the 

1<T City on 25th March, 1895. Li order to comply with the conditions 

tin which the balance of the Price Memorial Fmid was made 
ivvailable for the purchase of books for the Library, the City Council 
(l(>cided to establish a Public Library by opening a Reference 
Library in one of the rooms on the ground floor of the Guildhall 
and the Library was formally opened on the 30th December, 1 897. 
In Januarj^ 1898, I offered to assist the Library Committee and 
was appointed Hon. Librarian, and I acted in that capacity until 
Mr. Austin took up his duties as Librarian shortly before the Public 
Library in Brunswick Road was opened on the 31st May, 1900. 
Since that time, as a Member of the Library Committee, I have 
continued to watch the growth of the Library and been pleased to 
find it so much used and appreciated by the Citizens. 

For some years I have been collecting books and pamphlets 
more or less connected with the City of Gloucester ; and, with the 
kind assistance of Mr. Austin, I have selected a number of them 
whicli, I think, might fittingly be placed in the Reference Library. 

Bearing in mind Judge Powell's bequest of books for the use of 
tlie Citizens of Gloucester and knowing how these books have been 
cared for and appreciated, I have much pleasure in giving the books 
and pamphlets mentioned in the annexed Schedule (hereafter 
referred to as " the books ") to the Mayor, Recorder, City High 
Sheriff and Town Clerk for the time being of the City of Gloucester 
(hereafter referred to as " the Trustees ") upon and subject to the 
following trusts and conditions: — 

1 . Subject as hereafter mentioned, I request and empower the 
Trustees to deposit the Books with the Librarian in the Gloucester 
Public Library for the free use of the Citizens and Visitors to the 
]^ibrary, subject to proper and suitable provision being made and 
maintained for the books in the Refei-ence Department of the 
Library or some room or part thereof to be specially appropriated 
for books relating to the City of Gloucester ; but in the event of the 
Library Committee not making such provision within one year from 
1 liis date, or not afterwards maintaining it to the satisfaction of the 
Trustees, I desire and empower the Trustees to remove the books 
from the Public Library ; and in the event of any subsequent 
failure to make or maintain such proper and suitable provision for a 
peri(jd of six calendar months after notice from the Trustees to the 
Library Committee calling their attention to the matter, then and 
in any such case I empower the Trustees either to deposit the books 
upon sbnilar conditions in any other Library in the City or Coimty 
of Gloucester to which the public are freely admitted or to give them 
to the Trustees for the time being of the British Museum. 

2. Save as aforesaid, I desire that none of the books shall be 
removed from the Library in which they may be deposited, except 
for exhibition or any other special and temporary purpose approved 
by the Trustees ; and that any manuscripts and note books or 
extracts therefrom shall not be published without the previous 
written permission of the Librarian or the Trustees. 

3. If practicable, I should like the books to be kept in a 
separate case or cases, and to be known as " The Dancey Gift." 

I trust this gift may be appreciated by my fellow Citizens and 
that it may induce others to take an interest in and endeavour to 
preserve books and other things relating to the ancient City of 

I am, dear Mr. Mayor, 

Yours faitlifuUy, 

James Bruton, Esq., 

Mayor of Gloucester. 

After reading the letter, the Mayor stated that he had 
conferred with the Chairman of the Library Committee, who 
felt sure the Committee would be glad to comply with the 
conditions on which the Trustees were authorised to deposit the 
Books in the Gloucester Public Library, for the free use of the 
Citizens and Visitors to the Library, and proposed to ask the 
Committee to appoint a small Sub-Committee, of which 
Councillor Dancey should be one, to make the necessary 
provision for the Books, and see that the terms of the trust are 
duly observed. 

Moved by the Mayor, seconded by Coun. Langley-Smith, 

Resolved unanimously : — 

That the warmest thanks of this Council be given to 
Councillor C. H. Dancey for his most generous Gift, and that 
the Library Committee be requested to endeavour to comply 
with the conditions as to the disposition and use of the Books 
and Manuscripts. 

The above proceedings were reported to the Library 
Committee at a Meeting held on the 2nd of June, when the 
following Resolution was passed : — 

" That this Committee have heard with much pleasure of the 
most generous gift made by CoxnsrciLLOB Dancey, will gladly 
undertake the duties imposed by the Trust as recorded on the 
Minutes of the City Coimoil of the 31st of May, and wish to express 
the satisfaction they would feel if Me. Dancey's name could be 
associated with the Trustees named in his letter to the Mayor." 

Councillor Dancey's letter conveying this gift fully 
explains his long connection with the Public Library, and also 
his interest in local hterature. The Collection now deposited 
in the Library comprises 225 volumes, 321 pamphlets, and 150 
prints and portraits relating to Gloucestershire, many of these 
being of exceptional interest, as will be seen by the notes 
appended to the entries in the Catalogue. 

In addition to the printed matter Councillor Dancey has 
included his series of manuscripts illustrating the histories of 
the Saxon Churches of Gloucester, which have been compiled 
from City Records, Parish Registers and Records, and other 
sources. With these are his note-books, which are full of 
matter relating to local history. 

There are also over 400 volumes relating to the surrounding 
Counties, Wales, and of general literature, these forming a 
welcome addition to the Reference Library. 

A special case for the Collection has been provided in the 
Gloucestershire Room. 

The Gloucestershire books and pamphlets have been 
catalogued, so far as possible, by subject, the entries under 
each heading being arranged chronologically. An Author-Index 
is added,
