    Alchemists, Naturalists and Apothecaries in the Special Collection - Bolton Central Library and Museum

    As part of the Elements exhibition programme we’ll take a look at scientific texts in the Rare Books Collection. From ancient herbals used by medieval apothecaries to pioneering essays on electricity from the Industrial Revolution, Bolton Libraries have collected many works relating to discoveries and developments in almost every area of scientific endeavour. You’ll have the chance to get a closer look at some of the most fascinating books from our Special Collections.
