The Press Archive

An image showing some antique books in a line
The history of Cambridge University Press is revealed in all its variety and antiquity through our archive.

Minute books, photographs, building plans, financial records, printing ledgers, art work, press cuttings, and author correspondence files give evidence of the people and changing technologies of Cambridge University Press. These records are all held at Cambridge University Library and the online catalogue, which describes the records and gives you the references needed for requesting original documents, is available in the menu on this page.

Janus is the single point of networked access to catalogues of archives and manuscript collections held throughout Cambridge.

To understand how the records are arranged and catalogued, it is important to recognise that they fall within various categories and it may be necessary to search in more than one place to find the information you require. Some records relating to the early years of the Press are found within the University's own records, and later they are organised within a distinct Press archive.
