books in original bindings of the period. The collection's particular strength is the Renaissance,
where such authors as Montaigne, Ronsard, Estienne, and Rabelais are well-represented. The
thirty-six volume Encyclopaedie, ou Dictionnaire raisonne des Sciences, des Arts et des Metiers…
(1751-1780), known as the Diderot Encyclopedia, is unquestionably the most important title in the
collection.
Current collecting focus: Funds are currently unavailable for purchase in this area; however,
