Cardiff Rare Books

In November 2010, a reception and exhibition was held at the Senedd to celebrate the transfer of an important collection of 14,000 rare books from the Cardiff Public Library to Special Collections and Archives, enabled with funding from the Welsh Assembly Government and HEFCW, and the support of Cardiff Council. The collection includes rare examples of early books or incunabula printed before 1500; many early Bibles dating from 1540; early atlases including a world map published in 1492, a few months before Columbus reached America; a comprehensive set of seventeenth century Restoration plays; seventeenth century copies of Shakespeare’s works and many examples of fine printing from Victorian publishers.
