"Anyone who has a book collection and a garden wants for nothing.” – Cicero

Bibliophile Rex Nan Kivell agreed with Cicero. He spent his life collecting rare books now generously shared with Australians through the Library, and he gardened at his a mansion El Farah, in Tangier.

Hear about some of the exceptional books and printed items acquired by one of the greatest collectors of the 20th century and his gardening interests.
