Although Alfred Chester Beatty was born in New York, he was a Dubliner at heart. He was a compulsive collector who started out collecting stamps and minerals from a young age. By the time he had finished, he had amassed a rich and varied collection that included great works of Oriental art and Islamic manuscripts. He also made many contributions to different Irish cultural institutions. Part of his collection is exhibited in the library located at Dublin Castle that bears his name.
