Good Posts on Phillipps/Munby

Over at The Bibliothecary, Ed's got a pair of great posts on one of my favorite characters, the great collector Thomas Phillipps. The first points us to a BBC radio play about Phillipps (click on the "Tuesday" link, but it's only good until this coming Tuesday) and also has some other excellent links to pages on Phillipps and his biography, A.N.L. Munby. Ed's second post has more on Munby (I did not know he wrote ghost stories, I'll have to find them!) and about what happened to the massive collection after Phillipps' death. A true Victorian character, Phillipps.
