This large Special Collection features a wealth of titles relating to Victorian literature and culture, with a particular emphasis on fiction, periodicals and poetry. Selected from the private library of former University of Exeter Professor of Victorian Studies Chris Brooks, the Collection is of great interest to History, English and writing students. However, Victorian art, design and architecture are also well represented and many items are beautifully illustrated; as such the Chris Brooks Collection has a wide appeal across the many areas taught by both Falmouth University and University of Exeter's Penryn Campus. The Collection is formed from duplicates from the wider Chris Brooks Collection held at the University of Exeter's Streatham campus, which also contains a wealth of non published material.
The Collection is freely available to researchers for reference only use, and can be found on L2 of the Libary in The Reading Room.
The Chris Brooks Collection is in the process of being listed, with many items already fully searchable on the library catalogue.
