The British Library


NameThe British Library
DescriptionThe Britsh Library's Map Room holds a fair number of geographical games, mostly map-based, and the map-room collection can be searched separately by selecting 'cartographic items' from the catalogue subset menu on the website (although there are no images). The British Library incorporates the National Archive of Newspapers and periodicals at Colindale. It also holds volumes of uncatalogued game rules submitted as copyright deposit. The surviving ones (there was bomb damage) date mostly from 1882. Photographs of some of these, and of some catalogued games, have been taken to be added to this database, on the understanding these are for personal research only.
