Fellowships at the Edward Worth Library, Dublin

The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering a one month research
fellowship, to be held in 2013, to encourage research relevant to its
collections. The Worth Library is a collection of 4,400 books, left to
Dr Steevens’ Hospital by Edward Worth (1678-1733), an early
eighteenth-century Dublin physician. The collection is particularly
strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of
science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector
interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book.
Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key
areas. Further information about the collection and our catalogues may
be found on our website:

The closing date is the Tuesday 2 April 2013.
