This lavishly illustrated volume contains a selection of the papers presented at a symposium on the Fagel Collection, as well as specially commissioned articles, covering subjects as diverse as early Dutch book collections and plans of the cosmos, botanical sales catalogues and pamphlets on the bloody 1641 Rebellion in Ireland, Italian Renaissance poetry and the problem of integrating this enormous influx of books into the Trinity College Library.

As the first book-length study of this hugely important and hitherto relatively unknown collection – one of the most important private libraries in early modern Europe – the volume will be of immense value to scholars and general readers.
