Bound with History: Encounters with the Rose Library’s Collections Series Two

If you attended and enjoyed our last year’s inaugural series on our artists’ books collection, we have good news for you! On Wednesday, April 17th, we are hosting our second event, “History of the Early Book” (15th-16th-century) from 5-6:30 pm in Rose Library.

Two book historians, Professor Nick Wilding from Georgia State University and Jenny Bledsoe from Emory University, will cover the history of the early books in their lectures. Dr. Wilding will talk about the history of early printing, and Jenny Bledsoe will speak about Rose Library’s 15th-century chronicle roll and medical manuscript leaves. Relevant items from the Rose Library’s collection will be available for viewing after the talks.

This event is free and open to both Emory and non-Emory guests. Interested in attending this event? Please register online.
