The Wren Library houses 750 15th century printed books, the Capell collection of Shakespeariana, many books from the library of Sir Isaac Newton including his annotated copy of the Principia Mathematica (see John Harrison, The Library of Isaac Newton, Cambridge University Press, 1978), the Rothschild collection of 18th century literature and over 70,000 books printed before 1820. Many of these are entered in the ESTC (English Short Title Catalog).
