MORRAB LIBRARY

Morrab Gardens
PENZANCE
TR18 4DA

Penzance is fortunate to have a great independent library, the Morrab, established in 1818,.

The Morrab Library is rare because it is the only one in Cornwall and one of only 30 in the United Kingdom. It is one of the largest – ranking sixth, with more than 70,000 volumes and is strong in literature, history, biography, antiquities, topography and travel and religion and is also a centre for Celtic studies.

Some 2,750 of its books were printed before 1801, it has extensive runs of eighteenth- and nineteenth- century periodicals, among which are over a century of Cornish newspapers which start before 1850. There are seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Parliamentary Reports, nineteenth-century Blue Books, Historic Manuscript Commission Reports and a collection of 3,000 Napoleonic memorabilia, which has been described as “the only great Napoleonic collection in the world”; whilst the Library’s photographic archive has a computerized catalogue of over 10,000 prints and negatives of antiquities, places, people and events in West Cornwall. It has recently acquired a further 15,000 transparencies of buildings, industrial archaeology and related interest.

Set in a Victorian mansion with delightful gardens and large, comfortable rooms, the Morrab welcomes visitors to Penzance. For more information visit https://morrablibrary.org.uk.
