GUIDED TOURS OF THE EDWARD WORTH LIBRARY

FRIDAY 17TH MAY

11AM & 2PM

The Edward Worth Library in Dr Steevens’ Hospital, Dublin 8, is, quite literally, a gem of a collection. With its wonderfully preserved glittering spines and its unique early eighteenth-century glass bookcases, it offer readers and visitors an opportunity to enter the private world of a Dublin physician and connoisseur book collector at the start of the eighteenth century.

 

On Friday 17 May come see our current exhibition ‘Mythical Creatures at the Edward Worth Library’ and find out more about Edward Worth (1676-1733),

Contact details for the Worth Library may be found on the Worth website, alongside a host of materials about the collections, future events and all previous exhibitions: www.edwardworthlibrary.ie.

No booking required. All welcome on a first come, first served basis. Please note that tours cannot exceed 23 people.
