A Visit with Bridgewater College's 15th Century Illuminated Venice Bible
Thursday, March 10, 2016


Join us for a white glove, behind the scenes tour of a regional archives and manuscripts repository. Bridgewater College's Special Collections Librarian, Stephanie Gardner, will share treasures from the Alexander Mack Memorial Library and Reuel B. Pritchett Museum Collection, including the 1482-1483 "Venice Bible," one of the world's first books printed from moveable type! Enjoy a presentation about the collection and preservation work of Bridgewater College's Special Collections. Then, view some Civil War items, records of regional interest, a historic quilt, and other rare books. Gardner will take participants on a tour of the Alexander Mack Library following her presentation. This is an outstanding opportunity to visit a collection of rare items that are not on display to the public. This field trip requires only limited walking with few stairs and access to an elevator.
