Above is the illustrated title page of one of our editions of Richard Baxter’s, The saint’s everlasting rest, 1677.
You may ask what the title Disco Babe, has to do with a work by Richard Baxter on the saint’s…..the answer is in the picture.
I will buy a coffee for person with the first correct guess, I’ll post a picture of the answer in a couple of days if no one can find it.
It was discovered by Konstantina, the constervator that is currently cleaning and assessing The Angus Library collection. As a result of this she is opening and looking at every item in the collection, many of which have not been touched for well over a decade.
As she continues to clean she will come across gems like this title page which we will share them with you on this blog.Categories: Uncategorized

Welcome to the new Angus Library and Archive blog.
The main reason for starting this blog at this time is that it is a very exciting time in the life and development of the Angus.
We have a Conservation Project being undertaken alongside a Heritage Lottery Fund Project for more information about them please click on the tabs at the top of the page.
For the first time we are assessing the collection completely including a backlog that has never been touched, and through this process we expect to find all sorts of gems as well as interesting, strange and random items, such as the Catechism from the Council of Trent, 1567.
We also have a number of new staff that are working on the various projects which will also be adding to the blog.
So as we continue on this journey of discovery come with us and see what wonders we find.
