Rare Books at TEDx

Paul described several very unique titles from our Rare Book Collection, including our first edition signed Wealth of Nations, and discussed where the study of old books fits into an undergraduate curriculum.  That is, what are the take-aways from considering how a book was made and how a book has aged, and what a student can gain in describing what makes a book unique.  If you like to hear what Paul had to say the youtube version of his talk is here: "Let Me Show You a Book." All of the books Paul looked at are available for inspection in the Frank and Anne Piskor Reading Room, and if you have questions about the collection please contact Paul at pdoty@stlawu.edu, or 315-229-5476.
