|Description||From incunabula to the French Revolution
Andrew Malkiewicz lectured in history at the University of Edinburgh, during which time he collected a remarkable number of rare books and manuscripts. He generously presented this collection to the University in 2013. There are some 300 printed items, with particularly strong holdings of pamphlets produced during the French Revolution. The earliest item is an edition of Sallust printed in Venice in 1474. There are also over 40 manuscripts, ranging from a letter signed by Charles IX of France in 1568 to orders of Napoleon Bonaparte.
The collection is fully catalogued online. Shelfmark = “Malk.”|
