Montefiore Collection

Material added to the Parkes Library since its arrival at Southampton, includes books on Judaism from the collection of Claude Montefiore, President of the University College of Southampton, 1913-1934, books and journals on twentieth century Jewish history from the Library of the Institute of Jewish Affairs and books from the Joseph Sherman collection of Yiddish literature.

All enquiries should be directed to Archives.

Information on using the Library can be found in the Parkes Library Guide.

James Parkes saw the Parkes Library’s pamphlet collection as providing the day to day savour of an actual period which a historian seeks to catch.
