Join us for December’s Tuesday Treasure as we look back at what’s new in Special Collections this year, from recipe books and 18th century manorial records to literary letters and knitting patterns.
Whether material comes to us by acquisition, deposit, bequest or donation, Special Collections' collection of archives and rare books continues to develop year upon year.
Take down a recipe for lemon pudding from a 19th century manuscript recipe book.
Discover letters, diaries and photographs from the First World War.
Ever wondered what a "chubb fuddler" is? Well, a letter from Evelyn Waugh discussing the French translation of his novel "Vile Bodies" holds the answer!
Perhaps even find some craft inspiration in knitting pattern books from the business archives.
Join us for the final Tuesday Treasure of 2018 to explore more rare and unique material from the collections.
