Ever since Philip Murray’s earliest years in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, he has been an avid reader and collector of books. Starting with the Dandy and Beano comics, he progressed easily to more serious literature, aided by the discovery when a student in Dublin and later Galway of the great variety of second-hand bookshops to be found in both cities. While working in Australia he became a serious collector and also discovered the works of novelist Patrick White.
