Miræus Lecture 'The British Country House Library' (Marc Purcell)

Library of Blickling Hall
23-01-2013

It is well known that great aristocratic houses all over Europe once contained magnificent libraries. What is less well known - at least in Continental Europe - is that many hundreds of these libraries still exist in historic houses all over England, Scotland and Wales. Over 300,000 books survive in more than 150 libraries and are in the care of the National Trust, despite the name not a government body, but a private charity established in the late nineteenth century. Others belong to smaller private foundations, and others still have remained in private ownership. read more
