David Garrick: Book Collector at Victoria & Albert Museum Free

About

David Garrick was perhaps the most famous English actor before Laurence Oliver. Less well known is his passion for book collecting. Garrick assembled a private library of considerable range and distinction, which offers an entertaining if unconventional perspective on his professional and recreational interest. This display, which marks the 300th anniversary of Garrick's birth, showcases a selection of his books alongside manuscript and graphic materials to illuminate his complementary roles of performer and bibliophile.
