.%s: During January 1924 the Law Library received

from the Benno Loewy gift 7204 volumes.

On account of

Improper storage several hundred volumes were badly Injured and many others were entirely ruined. Several of these volumes are being held as exhibits pending some adjustment Of this damage, and 1100 pound were sold as junk. Where the library contained one or more copies of the books received with this gift, it was deemed advisable to dispose of some of the extra copies, and 28^2 volumes have been sold. There has been turned over to the University Treasurer to be applied to the Law Library Appropriation tS77.35 and approximately ยง594.00 is still outstanding from these sales. Several volumes have been turned over to the General Library wherever the nature of the books

demanded.

The condition of these books, together with the many breaks in the incomplete sets caused considerable correspondence, and in some instanoes volumes were deoured to complete the broken sets.

The Statute Room should have some more shelving as soon as possible, as It Is now necessary to side stack some of the booka.
