Three major collections of Unitarian and Nonconformist literature in Britain are at Luther King House in Manchester, Harris Manchester College in Oxford University, and the Dr. Williams Library in London. This book gives important information about the Unitarian antecedents of the Luther King library, which is used by five colleges: Northern Baptist, Northern College (United Reformed and Congregational), Hartley Victoria College, (Methodist) Unitarian College Manchester, and Luther King House Open College. In turn, the library and Luther King House cooperate with the University of Manchester, a major holder of Nonconformist literature. Manchester thus is a center for scholarship related to various British denominations.
