The Schulich-Woolf Rare Book Collection is focused on history and culture as expressed through early modern printing. At its core are the personal collections of Canadian entrepreneur, Seymour Schulich and Queen's Principal, Daniel Woolf. Through Mr. Schulich's continued support, W.D. Jordan Rare Books and Special Collections is actively adding to the initial 400 volume donation by acquiring 16th-century English printed books. Recently, Mr. Schulich gifted his collection of historic financial documents. The collection includes documents from Europe and Asia and span several centuries. A truly great addition to the Schulich-Woolf Rare Book Collection.
