Old Library Exhibition: Twentieth-Century First Editions
Magdalene Old Library will be opening its doors to the public over spring.
The February exhibition will focus on Twentieth-Century First Editions. From the Avant-garde to Neue Helvetica. An informative and colourful display from the extensive collection of twentieth-century first editions and dust jackets housed here at Magdalene College.
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.
The exhibition is free to attend and all are welcome.
Readers and researchers who wish to consult the collections are asked to contact the Library in advance for an appointment.
