What I Found in the Library

Hay Festival 2017, 

For 600 years, exquisitely produced volumes stored everything we know – from Gutenberg’s bibles to Newton’s Principia and Austen’s Persuasion. Purcell tells a rollicking tale of discoveries and bibliophile treasures from some of Britain’s greatest private library collections that are now saved for the nation. Purcell was formerly Libraries Curator for the National Trust and is now Deputy Director of Research Collections at Cambridge University Library.
