This lavishly illustrated volume is published to celebrate the tercentenary of the laying of the foundation stone of the world-famous Old Library in May 1712

The stately building houses collections of international importance that are still being added to by gift and purchase.

Almost fifty contributors explore the features of this remarkable building and its contents. There are essays dealing with specific books and manuscripts in the library (Book of Kells, Kelmscott Chaucer, Annals of Ulster, Brut chronicle, Fagel Missal), collections and archives (Beckett, Davitt, Pollard, 1641 Depositions, Cuala Press, Harry Clarke), individuals associated with the library (Claudius Gilbert, Jonathan Swift, James Stephens), maps, drawings, children's books, music, exhibitions held in the library, the second-hand book sale, the printed catalogue and the conservation laboratory.
