Rare Books Collection

Over 7,000 titles are held in this collection. The emphasis is on the 18th century, travel, literature, and civilization. Works in the collection are principally in English, Latin, French, German, and Italian. Over 550 titles were printed between 1473 and 1699. The collection thus provides excellent examples of early binding in vellum, pigskin, leather, and other materials, as well as examples of fine printing from the Aldine, Plantin, Baskerville, Bodoni, and other European presses. Works of eighteenth-century British writers comprise another strong grouping. The collection also contains exquisite facsimile editions of works of such artists and writers as Leonardo da Vinci and Shakespeare. Also present is a replica of the Gutenberg Bible.
