There are many books in the Rare Book Collection at Haverford – each notable and valuable in its own way. However, sometimes those distinguishing characteristics are most noticeable in contrast.
During exam week this semester, May 5 – May 9, 2008, a daily presentation of rare books will be on exhibit in Special Collections. Each day a LARGE book will be displayed juxtaposed with a small book – both sharing a common theme. You will be able to enjoy each book individually but also admire the contrasts that become evident by the comparison.
