Resource Focus : The Marandet Collection

Writing about web page

The University of Warwick's Marandet collection of 18th- and 19th-century French plays is a unique resource and one of the most significant collections of its kind in the country. There are over 2000 plays from the period 1700-1830 and a similar number from the period 1830-1900. Most of the plays were acquired originally by a 19th-century French collector, Amédée Marandet, who was himself an actor and playwright. Many of the works and their authors have now been forgotten but the collection is extremely rich in popular drama of the 18th and 19th centuries.

If you have any queries or would like to find out more, please contact Katherine Astbury in the French Department, or Peter Larkin and Stuart Hunt in the Library.
