Old Library: Bookbindings
Magdalene Old Library will be opening its doors to the public during spring.
The March exhibition will focus on Bookbindings. The Library offers a magnificent and varied collection of bindings, from gold-tooled leather to twentieth-century dust jackets.
Distinct from the Pepys Library, the Old Library has housed the historic books of the College in First Court since the fifteenth century, in what was the medieval Prior's residence.
As well as enjoying the historic, book-lined rooms, Visitors will see displays of items from the College's special collections and archives, which are not normally seen in public.
