This Gothic Revival building houses many significant books and manuscripts, including illuminated manuscripts and examples of early European printing (the Gutenberg Bible and Canterbury Tales) and a small piece of St John’s Gospel that is probably the earliest surviving fragment of the New Testament in any language. The visit includes a talk on the architecture of the building and on some of the very rare items in the collections.
