Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery

Part of Leeds University Library Galleries, the Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery permanently displays treasures from the Library’s Special Collections.

The displays includes original material written by the BrontÎs, stunning illuminated medieval manuscripts and rare books from across the globe. Explore the history of writing from hand to print. Follow the journey from an ancient Babylonian clay tablet to the unique beauty of modern artists’ books. Join explorers and pioneers in political, medical and social history through their notebooks, pamphlets and posters.

The Gallery offers original changing exhibitions twice a year, which explore a particular theme and collection in depth.
