Lloyd George Collection

Th University bought part of the private library of the former Prime Minister David Lloyd George from his son, Lord Tenby, in 1964.

Some volumes were merely added to Library stock, but 1,000 books of particular rarity or value were set aside as part of Special Collections. Some of these books were gifts from the authors to the statesman and contain a personal inscription. Some are volumes on the First World War and its aftermath, for example on the Treaty of Versailles, or the new Balkan States.

Many of these books are catalogued. You can find them through LibrarySearch.
