The Sloane Printed Books catalogue lists books which belonged to Sir Hans Sloane (1660-1753). Bibliographical records are enhanced with Sloane’s own numbers or other identifying marks, and with information about previous owners. A number of records include information on the physical state and condition of the items.

You can use the catalogue in many different ways, including:
  • identifying individual books from his library
  • displaying a range of items in the order in which Sloane kept them
  • searching for items from one of the other libraries from which Sloane acquired books
