The fifty manuscripts, printed books, and broadsides selected for this exhibition represent the core strengths of Bridwell Library’s rare book collections. Produced in Europe and the Americas from the twelfth century to the nineteenth, the highlights on display feature illuminated manuscripts and early editions of essential Christian writings, important examples that show the role of books in religious practice, texts owned and inscribed by the founders of Methodism, and several true rarities not found at other libraries.
