Abstract:

Cambridge University Library is one of the world's great research libraries. This book is a celebration of the treasures of the library from the perspective of a group of eminent scholars who actively use the collections for research. Chapters have been selected to illustrate the vast range of the library's collections: from the fifth-century Codex Bezae to the archives of contemporary writers and politicians; from medieval manuscripts to the letters of Charles Darwin; on history, theology, politics, sociology, art history, biology, agriculture, mathematics and astronomy.

Extensively illustrated with over two hundred photographs, many of them in colour and published for the first time, Cambridge University Library: The Great Collections offers a unique perspective on a remarkable institution.
