Please join us for a not-under-glass display of additions to the Rare Book Collection from the past two years, including the Library’s eight-millionth volume, presented by the Hanes Family Foundation. This year’s event features important works on the history of printing, books that invite interaction between viewer and object, and a number of items that challenge the traditional meaning of the word “book.” The Rare Book Collection’s global focus will also be emphasized, with books printed in London, Mexico City, Cameroon, Paris, Augsberg, Tehran, Saigon, Rome, Mexico, Nigeria, and more.
