The Pre 1800’s Book Collection is housed within the Society’s archives. Most are not openly accessible to the public because they are far too valuable and delicate.

There are over 500 of these fascinating books which date from the 1600’s to 1800. They cover a range of topics and give fascinating insight into the attitudes and behaviour of our ancestors. Click here to find out more about this and other family history treasures within the Society’s collections.
