Product Description


'Hugely informative and thoroughly researched.' Irish Times

'Equally at home with incunabula, cataloguing systems and techniques of conservation and digitization, no better analysis of the vicissitudes and riches of the library than Fox can be imagined.' Times Literary Supplement

'This handsome volume … is a very welcome addition to the college's history and to the intellectual history of Ireland … This book is not a dry recitation of facts, figures and money expended, it is an engrossing read, with shots of humour and quirky sidelights. It is well illustrated with portraits, plans for library buildings, and manuscript documents. The good-value price for an academic book should ensure a wide readership.' Máire Kennedy, Irish Arts Review

'I commend this excellent history of Ireland's finest library. It contains an intriguing 'what if?' - what would have been the Library's later history had David Webb been appointed College Librarian in 1949?' E. Charles Nelson, Archives of Natural History

Book Description

Trinity College Library in Dublin is 400 years old, the largest and oldest library in Ireland and home to the world-famous Book of Kells. This is the first comprehensive, scholarly history of the Library, covering its buildings, collections and characters – librarians, readers, politicians, book-collectors and book-thieves.

An excellent account of Ireland's foremost research library. For such an academic tome it is easy to read and helps place the evolution and growth of the Library in context. A most pleasurable read.
