The Panizzi touch: Panizzi's successors as Principal Librarian

1997

Abstract

BY 1878, Sir Anthony Panizzi was dying. His biographer Edward Miller paints an affecting picture of his condition at that time: "Almost a complete cripple, half blind, he was but the wreck of the magnificent man he had once been. All he could manage wasa short drive in the afternoon, accompanied usually by the faithful Fagan and then back to Bloomsbury Square, where a lift had been installed to ease somewhat the sick man's burden."
