Reading Music

The new exhibition in the Binks Trust display wall on the 6th floor of the Main University Library shows some of the fabulous items relating to music in our rare book, archive and musical instrument collections. Come and see some of the most important early modern books about musical instruments alongside volumes relating to musical life in 19th-century Edinburgh. Also on display are two company ledgers which help us to understand how musical instrument making firms operated.
