About

Supporters of the Old Library

AngelThis scheme is open to anyone with an interest in the history and the rare book collections of the Old Library, Trinity Hall, Cambridge. The aim is to help the College look after this unique resource through sponsoring conservation, cataloguing or other future projects.

Since its foundation in 1350, Trinity Hall's library has been supported by generous donors. Our founder, Bishop Bateman, gave the College his manuscripts on canon law, civil law, theology and chapel books. Among subsequent notable donors are the sixteenth-century antiquarian Robert Hare, and several former Masters including William Mowse (1552-53 and 1555-59), Thomas Eden (1626-45) and Sir Nathanael Lloyd (1710-35).

The Old Library's collections continue to be supported by generous donors right up to the present day. With your help we can secure the future of this unique Library and the treasures it contains!
