Other Collections

Vaughan Papers

The Library posesses the papers of Sir Charles Richard Vaughan (1774-1849). Vaughan was British emissary to Spain in 1808, and travelled widely in France, Spain, the Levant, Western Asia, and Russia. In 1825 he was appointed Envoy Extraordinary to the United States of America, until October 1835. There is a type-written catalogue of the entire collection available in the Library. All the papers have been microfilmed, and these may be viewed in the Library.

Wren Drawings

After the death of Sir Christopher Wren's son, the College acquired almost half of the extant drawings, representing the full spectrum of Wren's career, including his work for the church, the crown, and the universities; many of the drawings show un-executed designs and preparatory sketches.

Before contacting the Library, those wishing to view drawings, or request images, are advised to consult:
