Early Printed Books and Special Collections

Welcome to the Department of Early Printed Books and Special Collections (EPB), located in the East Pavilion of the Old Library. The Old Library has been the home of research in Trinity College Dublin for almost 300 years and houses the oldest and most valuable books in an ever-expanding collection. We look forward to adding you to the generations of readers who have studied here.

Besides all early printed books and pamphlets, Special Collections includes private press items, limited editions, signed books, Anglo-Irish literature, Irish Archival material and much else that is either valuable or vulnerable. The collections are constantly increasing, both under legal deposit of new Irish works and by purchase or donation. Cataloguing is constantly in progress to ensure that as much of the collection as possible is available to readers.
