Library of Philippe-Alexandre Rey-Herme, theologian, remedial teacher, professor at the Institut catholique de Paris. Collection acquired in 1966. First deposited in the Bibliothèque d'éducation, it was transferred in 1988 to the Service des livres rares et des collections spéciales for conservation and valuation.
Collection of works on education in Europe, and more particularly in France, from the 16th to the 20th century. Contains many rare books, including important texts on 17th-century education. All aspects of education, history, sociology, teaching, philosophy and psychology are covered, with the emphasis on ancient books. Children's literature is admirably well represented: illustrated stories, collections of songs and theatre for children, a fine collection of novels, in fact all the young people's classics from the 19th century to today.
