Product Description

Review

'The global view of libraries and librarianship is typical of all three volumes. So, too, is the excellent bibliography and index … this is the most academic, with an extremely high quality of scholarship … This book is the starting point for all research into early British library history, informative in itself and directing readers further.' Rare Books Newsletter

'Volume 1 is, in scope and detail, a thoroughly documented and illustrated account of collections of books wholly unlike what we have come to regard as a library. … CHLB is without a doubt a major contribution to library history.' The Library

Book Description

This is the first detailed scholarly history of libraries in Britain and Ireland, first published in 2006. It aims to provide a panorama of the great variety of libraries since the medieval period, setting them in their social and cultural contexts and interpreting their role as it has changed over time.
