National Library of Estonia’s French collection: art, prophesy and the black market of books

Dr. Sophie Turner

Over the last year Dr. Sophie Turner, a former Oxford University researcher and lecturer, has been researching the National Library’s collection of French books. Dr. Turner has turned her focus onto the rare books collection only to be confronted with some remarkable findings, even as the research could only be done on the library’s digital catalogues as the physical archives remain packed away for the duration of the National Library’s reconstruction. „We were lucky enough to gain a true French collection expert’s look into out collections. The National Library is overjoyed at the wealth of materials Dr. Turner identified“ stated Ruth Hiie, a specialist of old books at the National Library of Estonia.
