Old Library Exhibition: Sir Edwin Lutyens and Magdalene College
Magdalene Old Library will be opening its doors to the public over summer.
The August exhibition will focus on Sir Edwin Lutyens and Magdalene College. A celebration of Sir Edwin Lutyens's 150th anniversary with a look at his beautiful designs for Magdalene College's Benson Court built in 1928.
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.
Readers and researchers who wish to consult the collections are asked to contact the Library in advance for an appointment.
