The Library holds an impressive print collection of over 3,700 prints, both bound in volumes and individual prints. It includes a rare and an intact 18th century collection. The prints are particularly significant as the majority have not been pasted and bound into albums, as is common in other collections of that period.

The collection comprises fifteenth- to nineteenth century prints, including those by Vouet, Mellan, Goltzius, Hogarth, Piranesi, and the Sadeler family.
