Please visit the Rare Book Room to view many rare books, manuscripts, and memorabilia that have been added to our collection in the past two years. 

The exhibit largely features items that supplement our working lawyer’s collection, particularly our 19th century American lawyer collection. There are books that would have appeared such a practitioner’s library and actual documents produced in colonial and early American litigation. Additionally, we have cartoons, broadsides, and some new additions to our Francis Bacon collection. 

You are invited to view the exhibit anytime the room is open: generally weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibit will remain on view through mid-August 2014. 

A handout describing the entire exhibit is available here.
