The Library

bibliotecaThe collection of the Pierre Verger Foundation library consists nearly 4000 titles, mainly of books from Verger´s personal library, acquired over the course of his life. Most of the works in the collection focus on Benin, Nigeria and Brazil, but there are also books on African and African Diaspora cultures in other parts of the world. The library also contains periodicals, novels and hundreds of books acquired after Verger’s death, including works about him or that are illustrated by his photographs. Everything in the collection is available for on-site consultation. However, in order to protect the collection from damage, photocopies are not permitted.

The links at right lead to lists of some of the titles in the library’s collection. A complete list will become available in the future.
