A Visit to Wormsley: The Getty Library

1 October @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

While we wait to confirm access to this exceptional collection of rare manuscripts and books, please diary October 1 or 2. At the invitation of Mark Getty, the last surviving son of billionaire aesthete and collector J Paul Getty, we will enjoy the rare opportunity to visit the library compiled by these two bibliophiles. Highlights of this astonishing collection, housed in an equally stunning bespoke building on Mark Getty’s estate, include a hand annotated copy by Henry VIII of biblical passages alongside atlases inked in crushed lapis lazuli, exquisitely bound volumes and rare first editions of Shakespeare.
You won’t want to miss this visit. Details to come.
