Today's the big day, the eight hundredth anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta.
To observe the occasion we've put together an exhibit we hope you'll find interesting. We're pleased to highlight an item from our Rare Book collection, the first volume (Volume the First) of The statutes at large, from Magna Carta, to the end of the last Parliament, 1761. This title was commonly found in the libraries of the American founding fathers. Also featured are some very fine brand-new books, from the lavishly illustrated Magna Carta : the foundation of freedom 1215-2015 to the pocket-sized, accessible Magna Carta : a very short introduction.
Please visit us through October to view them and the rest of the display.
