The old collection stored in the Penang Collection is a very important and valuable collection as it collects printed collections, high-value collections and collections published before 1900. Until now, PPAPP holds more than 1978 rare collections of titles written in English. All of these collections are the original collection of the original Penang Library or the high end of The Prince Of Wales Island Library including maps, newspapers, books, royal news and others
