    About

    An archive photo of the Grenville Library at the British Museum. The photograph was taken in 1875 by the British photographer Frederick York.

    Sir Thomas Grenville (1755-1846) was a Trustee of The British Museum from 1830. He had a fine library of 20,240 volumes which he left to the Museum in his will. The books arrived in January 1847 in twenty-one horse-drawn vans.

    The only vacant space for this large library was a room originally intended for manuscripts, between the Front Entrance Hall and the Manuscript Saloon. The books remained here until the British Library moved to St Pancras in 1998.

    Reproduced here as a print on archive quality paper (remains colour-true for 100 years), the photograph serves as a realistic portrayal of the Museum over 100 years ago.
