The Cathedral Collection

Liber Pontificalis Aniani of Bangor, c. 1260-6The collection consists of over 4,500 books of theological or religious content on deposit from Bangor Cathedral, and obtained by us in the face of strong competition from other Welsh Universities. The main character of the Cathedral Library is the wealth of early printed books which is remarkable for its size. 1,100 books were printed before 1700, including four Incunabula, twenty-three Black Letter books, and specimens from most of the famous early Continental presses.
