Selected from the private library of former University of Exeter Professor of Victorian Studies Chris Brooks, this large Special Collection features a wealth of published titles documenting all aspects of Victorian culture, including literature, history, architecture, art and design.
Also included are biographies of key political, literary and artistic figures alongside novels by many notable authors of the pwerios such as Charles Dickens, Sir Walter Scott, Joseph Conrad, The Bronte's and Wilkie Colins.
The Collection is of great relevance to History, English and Writing students. In addition, the many beautifully bound and illustrated volumes are also of interest to those studying a wide range of arts courses. As such this Collection has a wide appeal across the many areas taught by both Falmouth University and University of Exeter's Penryn Campus.
The Collection is available to researchers for reference use on L2 of the Penryn Campus Library in The Reading Room.
Items are listed, and fully searchable, on the Library Catalogue
The Collection is formed of 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.
