The collections at CCA-CCE (and very occasionally CCF, for folio sized volumes) cover a huge range of subjects, geographical areas and periods. They are mainly collections that have been acquired in their entirety, either as donations or bequests from the original collector, or have been purchased in order to be kept together. They are all excellent examples of the art of collecting, and some include materials relating to how they were formed, such as correspondence, card catalogues and other reference items. Modern donated collections are often added to this class, rather than dispersed, so that they can be used and understood as the original collector intended.
