PrEsentation OF THE Fondation Dosne-Thiers

The Fondation Dosne-Thiers is first and foremost a research library, housing more than 156,000 volumes, including 1,500 old periodicals, 30,000 prints and caricatures, 1,000 drawings and 2,357 boxes of manuscripts. The library is dedicated to the history of France during the 19th century, with material related to the general, political, military, social and administrative history of France from 1789 to 1914. With its delightful air of private library and cabinet of curiosities, it is open to scholars on Thursdays and Fridays.
The Fondation Dosne-Thiers hosts a certain number of cultural events, including lectures and concert/recitations.
The Fondation’s salons are regularly made available to companies and individuals for meetings and receptions.
Since 2009, the building has also given a home to the steering committee of the Fondation Thiers (Centre de Recherches Humanistes), an institution also created by Félicie Dosne in 1893, whose aim is to recognise excellence in young researchers.
