The catalogues and monographs available for download here were published by A. Chester Beatty or for the museum.

They represent only a selection of the books published about the Chester Beatty collections. Other published catalogues may be consulted in the museum’s on-site Reading Room. These are historic publications, and may not reflect current scholarship, or the present scope of the collections.

Please note that the file sizes of the PDF catalogue downloads are quite large, ensure you have enough internet bandwidth to manage the activity.
