Catalogue of Modern Manuscripts in the Library of Trinity College, Cambridge

The manuscripts described here, which date from the sixteenth century to the present day, are widely varied, but a large proportion of them are collections of personal papers, many of them belonging to former members of the College. These papers document the lives and work of people active in a range of fields, including science, literature, philosophy, politics, economics, and bibliography.
