08/03/2015Celebrate International Women’s Day by visiting the Hugh Owen Library. The library holds a number of early editions by the novelist and diarist Fanny Burney/Madame D’Arblay (1776-1828). Recently we have unearthed a couple of volumes associated with close members of her family, her son Rev. Alexander D’Arblay (1794-1837) who was an associate of Charles Babbage, and her brother Charles Burney (1757-1817), a classical scholar and notorious Cambridge book thief. There is also a volume from a close family friend, Samuel Crisp (1707-1783) who may have influenced her writing.
05/03/2015We are pleased to announce the addition to the library’s collections of the first part of the extensive and eclectic collection of books bequeathed to the University by the late Dr Richard Kemp. Dr Kemp, a former academic, most recently in IBERS, had a long and distinguished career here and we are delighted that he chose the University as a fitting home for his collection. Amongst the books are some beautiful Folio Society editions as well as scholarly books on a range of topics which include history, transport and the natural world. These books can be viewed and some borrowed from the Hugh Owen and Thomas Parry libraries: look out for a Richard B. Kemp bequest noted on the record on Primo, the library catalogue, and for a book plate on the inside of the book.
