Books belonging to Henry VIII, Richard III, Mary I and Edward VI are among the treasures in the historic library of the Archbishops of Canterbury, one of the oldest public libraries in England. 

In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb takes a tour of just a few items from Lambeth Palace Library’s priceless collection with the librarian archivist Giles Mandelbrote.

There are pictures of all of the items featured in this podcast on Suzannah’s social media accounts - @sixteenthCgirl - on Facebook, Twitter, Threads, and Instagram.
