£500 of offer to student book-collectors
Cambridge University Library is offering students the chance to win £500 by building their own book collections.
The Rose Book-Collecting Prize was endowed in 2006 and is believed to be the first of its kind offered by any European university. As well as the £500 prize money, the winner will be offered 10 years’ free membership of the Friends of Cambridge University Library.
The 2015-16 prize was awarded to Edwin Rose of Darwin College for his collection of books on 'Popular natural history and natural philosophy of the eighteenth century’.
