You've undoubtedly seen pictures of the Old Library at Trinity College in Dublin (it's beautiful!), but did you know about the treasure held there?

What a remarkable group. Always come here first to look for your book. Quick, responsive, lovely collections - and you should see the care they take with packaging - not like any other book seller I've used.
