King's College London, Foyle Special Collections Library

This collection contains items from the Foyle Special Collections Library, King's College London. The Foyle Special Collections Library holds over 180,000 printed books and journals, as well as maps, slides, sound recordings and manuscript material, spanning the humanities, sciences and social sciences and ranging in date from the 15th century to the present day. The history of medicine is a notable strength of these holdings, which include the historical library collections of St. Thomas's Hospital, Guy's Hospital and King's College Hospital, as well as those of the Institute of Psychiatry and of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the latter providing a unique insight into medicine and public health under the British Empire.
