The collections of the Christ's College Old Library are a priceless resource, including rare books and manuscripts from the medieval period to the twentieth century. First editions of Milton's works, letters from Charles Darwin, celebrated Oriental manuscripts, early printed legal and theological books: all these and more are held in trust for present and future generations of scholars. To guarantee the long-term preservation of this unique collection, the College has launched a major conservation and custodianship programme. Individuals interested in supporting this initiative are invited to become Friends of the Old Library. For an annual subscription, Friends receive privileged access to the Library collections, invitations to lectures by experts, and an annual newsletter. For further information, please email the Development Office.
