The Furman University Libraries invites you for a gathering on Wednesday, March 16 at 3:00 PM in the Pitts Room (2nd floor of the library). Furman’s Bibliophiles have enjoyed  several stimulating presentations and discussions over the years. This spring’s meeting will be an informal viewing of a group of recent acquisitions in Special Collections and Archives. Jeff Makala will be on hand to provide background (and justification, if necessary!). Recent highlights include a small archive from a British WWII conscientious objector, three Anglo-Indian works not represented in any North American libraries, a Chinese missionary photo album from the early 20th century, some examples of contemporary book art, the Pennyroyal Caxton Bible, a set of Dickens’s Mystery of Edwin Drood in original parts, two 18th century American almanacs, and the first book of poetry (1880) about the bicycle. Additional new acquisitions can be found on the Special Collections Instagram account:

Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see as many of you as possible.
