RECORD: [Anon.] 1860. Catalogue of books, in the Singapore Library, with regulations and by-laws. Singapore: Printed at the Mission Press.

REVISION HISTORY: Transcribed (single key) by AEL Data, corrections by John van Wyhe. RN1

NOTE: Scanned from a photocopy of a catalogue in the National Library of Singapore.

The holdings of the 19th-century Singapore Library had a rapid turnover so the state of the library in this catalogue should not be taken as a record of what it contained even a year before or after this date. Monthly receipts of new books on the P&O steamers were listed in the newspapers. Wallace used the library when in Singapore.

Resolutions carried by a majority of the meeting shall be binding on the Proprietors generally.

VI.—Resident Proprietors, who are prevented from attending the Annual Meetings, shall be at liberty to vote by proxy, if the necessary authority be produced in writing, and be held by another Proprietor.

XIII.—It will be the duty of the Secretary to keep a record of the proceedings of the Committee, to conduct the correspondence, to call meetings, to carry the resolutions of the General Meetings and of the Committee into effect, and generally to manage the Library under the superintendence of the Committee.
