Can I take/ can you supply photographs of the material?

We normally allow self-service (non-flash) photography for non-commercial research purposes.

If requested, we are able to provide photographs for a fee (please email library@christs.cam.ac.uk for more details). This is by far your best option if you want very-high-resolution images, perhaps for publication in a book or journal article.
