Clare Hall

Fine art photography of the Ashby Library, Clare Hall Cambridge presented as part of the large Illuminating Cambridge Libraries series. The Clare Hall Library is a comfortable and colourful space adorned with the influence of the original owner of the house, Prof WW Rouse Ball. He was a magic enthusiast and founding president (1919-1925) of the Pentacle Club, one of the world’s oldest magic societies. Remnants of his influence are seen today in the gorgeous stained glass windows with magic puzzles to solve. Can you do it? (See “Window Numbers” below.)

This photographic collection of the Ashby Library, Clare Hall Cambridge contains 25 images, a small selection of which are shown below and available as giclee prints in many sizes.

Created and presented with thanks to the librarians and by kind permission of the President and Fellows of the College. Click here to learn more about the library.
