three volumes from the tiny book display

New semester, new display from our Archives and Special Collections. On display in the case at the 2nd floor entrance to the library are some of our oldest--and smallest--volumes. The books in this display were published between 1552 and 1888, and some are lavishly decorated. The cover of Palma Sionska, a Czech language prayer book from the 19th century, is adorned with ivory panels.
