Highlights from the Mary W. Runnells Rare Book Room

Wednesday, October 10, 2007 to Sunday, January 20, 2008

Visitors had the rare opportunity to experience up-close over thirty works from the wonderful collections of The Field Museum Library, which have been amassed since the Museum’s founding in 1893. Visitors learned about advances in book illustration, obsessions and eccentricities of book artists, and fine print-making on different continents over the last two hundred years.
