About the Library

Many of the University of Birmingham’s pre-1700 imprints are already on our database and COPAC (as a result of previous externally funded projects), but approximately 2,000 have still to be added via Britain in Print. 

Collection Highlights Collection 1: The subject range is extensive, including theology, philosophy, history, education, travel, topography, law (including a small but significant collection of sixteenth and seventeenth century legal treatises), literature, medicine including dentistry and science. Books published in the 1660s are a particular strength. Among our discrete collections, the once parochial library of St Mary’s Church in Warwick, established in 1701, numbers about 1,400 volumes, mainly on theological subjects, including nearly 100 volumes published in the 16th century and over 600 in the 17th century. The library of Reverend Thomas Wigan (1743-1818), minister of Wribbenhall near Bewdley, contains some seventeenth century theology, but also history, law, science and literature, including a copy of the first edition of Paradise Lost.
