St John's College - Old Library

Fine art photography of the Old Library, St John’s College Cambridge presented as part of the large Illuminating Cambridge Libraries series. The historic library at St John’s was built in 1628 and nearly all of its original features are still in place. Some of the original hand-written catalogues have been preserved at the end of the bookshelves. Of particular interest are the historic book spines and thermometer (see ‘Thermometer‘ and ‘Books III‘ for examples).

This photographic collection of the Old Library at St John’s College Cambridge was photographed in 2017 and contains 58 images, a small selection of which are shown below and available as giclee prints in many sizes.

Created and presented with thanks to the librarians and by kind permission of the Master and Fellows of the College. Click here to learn more about the library.
