Mark Longman Library

The collection consists of around 4,000 books, pamphlets and journals on subjects related to the history of the book, including bibliography, book production, publishing history and practice, readers and reading, and literary biography.

Formerly the "Books about books" collection donated to the National Book League by Maurice Marston, its first secretary, the collection was expanded following the launch of an appeal in 1972 in memory of Mark Longman, Chairman of the National Book League 1967-1971. The collection passed to the University Library in 2002.

The collection is on open access in Rooms G9-10 at the Special Collections Service.
