50 Minutes-1 Book Series Returns to ARB

By:  Kevin Grace

The lunch-time discussion series of wonderful items in the Archives & Rare Books Library is ready to go for the 2013-2014 academic year.  Our first presentation is a repeat of a popular talk on our anthropodermic binding.  The book is one for which we always receive numerous questions because of its curious nature.  So please bring your lunch and conversation on Thursday, September 26, at 12 noon.

Future 50 Minutes-1 Book presentations over the next several months include Frankenstein in October; miniature books, including some of the smallest books you’ll ever barely see; the Arabian Nights; George Moerlein’s A Trip Around the World; William Nicholson’s London Types; and Ireland’s Celtic Revival in the early 20th century.
