Since 1990 the Cambridge Project for the Book Trust (CPBT) has supported seminar series, academic and public conferences, and five major collaborative bibliographical projects, and has funded public lectures and research visits by overseas scholars.

The Trust has raised over one million pounds to support studentships and bibliographical research. Established with the support of the Faculty of History, University of Cambridge, and listed with the Cambridge University Development Office, the CPBT is a nationally and internationally recognized Educational Trust, with generous past and present support from colleges at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford.

The CPBT has been the recipient of major grants from the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy, the European Science Foundation, the British Council in Germany, the Coca Cola Foundation, and individual benefactors. The Trust is committed to expand and develop bibliographical scholarship and public interest in the History of the Book

Many of the associates of the Trust, together with its Director, Prof. James Raven, have pioneered the study of book history. The Trust has sponsored more than 150 research papers, more than 60 public lectures, and its many conferences and events have been open to the public. Details of its publications and continuing research projects are given on this website. The Trust welcomes collaborative proposals.
