Rare book collection
The BDA library has a large collection of rare books from the 16th to the 20th centuries. A catalogue of the collection as it existed then was produced in 1964 and
may be viewed here. Since then the 20th century collection has expanded and book records for these and some of the older rare books exist on our
online catalogue along with links to full text versions where available.
Researchers may visit the library with prior permission.
