The British Library came into existence on July 1, 1973 and was established under the British Library Act. The library contains a large number of historical manuscripts as well. These include the manuscripts and books of Sir Robert Cotton, Robert Harley, Sir Hans Sloane, and the King's Library of King George III, and the Old Royal Library that was donated by King George II.
