How to See Rare Books from the Early and Fine Printing Collection
There are over 8,000 early books in the collection printed before 1701, and many modern books of fine printing.
A book in the Early and Fine Printing Collection will be identified on the catalogue - on the left hand side of the entry there will be a symbol of a quill pen and the wording ‘Early and Fine Printing’.
The Library catalogue can be found at http://libcat.bham.org.uk
