The Library of Trinity College Dublin

ISBN: 9780500294598 (PB - E)

The Library at Trinity College Dublin dates back to the establishment of the college by Queen Elizabeth I in 1592. The library is the largest in Ireland, containing more than 6.2 million volumes and an extensive collection of early manuscripts, including the internationally famous Book of Kells, which attracts around 1 million visitors annually from around the world. A visit to the Book of Kells includes a visit to the Long Room, the main chamber of the Old Library, and one of the most beautiful and impressive libraries and architectural spaces in the world. In this, the first of a new series called Pocket Photo Books, photographer Harry Cory Wright explores the richness of the architecture and collections of the Long Room, resulting in a book that brings the reader close to the sense of being there. With a brief introduction by Trinity's Librarian and College Archivist, Helen Shenton, about her own experience of the Long Room, this beautifully designed book of exquisite photographs will appeal to all visitors to Trinity College Dublin, and to anyone keen to explore in detail one of the most awe-inspiring libraries and architectural spaces in the world.
