Originally published in 1964 this volume continues the studies of the history of libraries and incorporates material included in The Origins of the English Library with some additional material. It was published at a time when there was a marked revival of interest in the historical background of libraries and reading. The book examines the social and intellectual background against which libraries have prospered and the roots in both classical and medieval periods from which they came. This book will be of interest to historians, librarians and educationalists.

Raymond Irwin directed the University College London School of Library, Archive and Information Studies from 1945 until 1969.
