Literature for children and young people
The Collection of Manuscripts and Rare Books includes extensive holdings of literature for children and young people (KJL). These include books of historic and illustrative value from the 16th to the 19th century and collectable editions right up to the 21st century. This unusual library holding has been indexed in a special project and can now be searched separately.
