University Library Exhibition: His Royal Favour

His Royal Favour: The Books That Built the Library

For three hundred years these volumes have been at the heart of University research, and our current exhibition shows a selection of these, ranging from an eighth-century manuscript of Bede to scientific and architectural masterpieces.
