Jane Grigson Collection

The personal library of the distinguished cookery writer Jane Grigson

Jane Grigson Collection

The collection comprises, as its core, the personal library of the distinguished cookery writer Jane Grigson (1928 - 1990). It is located in the Special Collections Reading Room of Headington Library, Oxford Brookes University.

This collection, primarily of books and pamphlets, reflects closely the culinary themes that underpinned her writing, and includes her personal notebooks. The Jane Grigson Trustees continuously add material to complement and update the core collection. The contents of the main collection have been catalogued on LibrarySearch and the Archive Catalogue. Many of the cookbooks have also been indexed by the Eat Your Books database, to which the Library subscribes.
