Inklings Collection

The Inklings Collection focuses on materials related to the British literary discussion group that met weekly at the University of Oxford from the 1930s to the 1960s. Special attention is given to the lesser-known Inklings and to comprehensive collections of their works, as well as resources representing the group’s milieu and wider social circle. The collection includes more than 725 items and features primarily early-edition works, but also contains advanced publisher copies, manuscripts, letters, and photographs, as well as books from the personal libraries of the group’s members.

See also the Owen Barfield Family Collection. The books from these collections were curated by Roger White, EdD, and can be found by selecting a name below.
