View unique books with Page Turners

Page Turners is a new free to access resource from the Library's Special Collections department. The resource makes rare and unique volumes from within our collections available to view remotely, from within your web browser. Turning the Pages technology allows for the physical process of handling the book to be replicated on your screen.

The first items to be made available include Petre's Gradual - a very rare thirteenth century volume of music discovered within the University collections in 2014, a list of operations performed on injured servicemen by Professor Frederick Pybus during WWI and the first three family albums created by Mary Katharine Trevelyan (Molly) of Wallington, showing life with her husband Charles Philips Trevelyan and their six children at Cambo in the first half of the twentieth century.
