26 Postcards from the Collections

A Bodleian Library A to Z

The Bodleian Library is home to treasures from every corner of the globe that mark major milestones in cultural history. This book contains twenty-six pull-out postcards—one for each letter of the alphabet—each featuring a rare or beautiful manuscript from the library’s outstanding collections. From Shakespeare’s First Folio to the Gutenburg Bible, the Magna Carta, an early Jane Austen manuscript, and anatomical drawings by sixteenth-century physician Andreas Vesalius, the works showcased represent the maths, music, medicine, literature, and more.

Whether you’re one of the more than one million visitors who enjoy a selection of treasures on display at the library each year or a history buff, bibliophile, or dedicated librarian, these beautiful postcards are perfect either to display or send to friends.
