Élie Bouhéreau (1643–1719) was a French Protestant physician from La Rochelle who studied at the Protestant académie of Saumur and fled from France at the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. By 1683, his collection numbered some 1700 volumes. Since 1707, it has been kept in Marsh's Library. This article is based on archival material, including Bouhéreau's correspondence, and on the detailed examination of annotations found in individual copies of the books in the collection. The article throws light on the ways in which Bouhéreau acquired these books and examines why he bought them and how he read them. The collection is a rare example of a fully preserved private library that belonged to a prominent member of a learned provincial circle, made up of former students from the académie of Saumur.
