Special and Named Printed Collections


A collection of 153 volumes gifted to the library in 2015 from the estate of Dr Peter Sharratt, former lecturer at the University of Edinburgh who specialised in French early modern literature. It primarily comprises 16th- and 17th-century Continental books, some with Scottish provenance. The earliest work is Giovanni Augurelli's Iambicus liber Primus published by the Aldine Press in 1505. There are six other Aldine Press books in the collection. The subject areas covered are mainly theological, but also with texts of classical authors, legal works and some histories.

Shelfmark: Sharratt.
