The Edward Clark Collection consists of around 5,000 items illustrating the development of the book from the 15th century. More specifically, it concentrates on the development of typography, the techniques of printing illustrations, and fine bindings. The collection is located within the Campus Library at the University's Merchiston Campus.
The few months Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon spent at Craiglockhart in 1917 were productive for both of them. Their relationship was mutually beneficial to their work, particularly to Owen who was only beginning to find his poetic voice.
As a tribute and commemoration to Owen, Sassoon and other poets of the First World War, the University established The War Poets Collection in 1988, on the 70th Anniversary of the signing of the Armistice: 11 November 1918.
