Clare College Cambridge

The Fellows' Library

The College, the second oldest in Cambridge, possesses a library of approximately 6000 volumes including some manuscripts and incunabula. Its early printed holdings are noted in H.M.Adams Catalogue of books and the Short-title catalogue. In 1971 the College received a bequest of bird books from the Reverend F.I.Wane. These have been deposited as a named collection in the Cambridge University Library.

A draft catalogue of the Fellows' Library exists in searchable database form.  Readers may be given access to this catalogue for a limited time if it would benefit their research.
