ll_logoLotteryLogoWith the help of a heritage Lottery grant we are able to bring you this web resource, delving into some of the treasures from Thomas Layton’s Library project. Here the user can explore part of the extensive collection of over 8,000 books which still survive, with important works on almost every subject – natural history, classics, history and archaeology, the decorative arts, art and artists, music, architecture (including church architecture), geography and topography, plays and poetry, philosophy, politics and satire, English and foreign travel, explorers and exploring, as well as works of literature.
