Special and Named Printed Collections in the National Library of Scotland

BALMORAL COLLECTION

This collection of 57 volumes of German literature and German translations of foreign literature was presented to the Library in 1957 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. The books, published mainly between 1839 and 1860, include the works of Lessing, Lichtenberg, Jean Paul and J.H. Voss, and have a distinguished provenance, as they contain Queen Victoria’s Balmoral bookplate and were possibly collected by Prince Albert.

Shelfmark: Bal.
