Dr Edward Worth was an early eighteenth-century Dublin physician who bequeathed a library of some 4,400 volumes to Dr Steevens’ Hospital, Dublin (an institution of which he was a Trustee). The Edward Worth Library remains in situ and contains a particularly fine collection of early modern medical and scientific texts. Worth was a connoisseur book collector and as a result the Worth Library is a treasure trove for historians of the book as material object.
