Elaine Evans 0 15 Article rating: No rating

What qualities define a rare book? Is it age, value, construction, or something else entirely? Could it be the story of the book: how it was made or who may have owned it? Join ALPLM’s Reference Librarian Meghan Harmon as she highlights some of her favorite treasures from the library’s Rare Book collection. You’ll see books intended for peasants and presidents, oversized and miniature, adorned with illuminations, gildings, velvets, vellums, and even a book bound in the skin of python.
