One hundred eighty-six volumes added to the library of Robert J. Gage (1810-1882) and his son George Williams Gage (1856-1921) reflect the broad intellectual interests of the Union District planter and his jurist son who served on the South Carolina Supreme Court at the time of his death.

Titles include history, literature, theology, politics, natural history, travel, and biography. Significant South Carolina titles are the 1905 edition of Alexander Gregg, History of the Old Cheraws...; Joseph LeConte, Religion and Science... (New York, 1874); Kelly Miller, Race Adjustment. Essays on the Negro in America (New York, 1910); The South Carolina Agriculturist..., Vol. 1 (1856); and Michael Tuomey, Report on the Geology of South Carolina (Columbia, 1848).

A number of the general titles in the Gage library represent additions to the holdings of the University Libraries. Examples include Henry Blunt, A Practical Exposition of the Epistles to the Seven Churches of Asia (Philadelphia, 1839); H.M. Brackenridge, History of the Late War Between the United States and Great Britain... (Philadelphia, 1836); Louis Marie Granpre, A Voyage in the Indian Ocean and to Bengal...: to which is added, A Voyage in the Red Sea... (Brattleborough, Vt., 1814); and Friedrich Schlegel, Lectures on the History of Literature, Ancient and Modern (New York, 1844).
