Course detail: OSH249 - Highlights of the Spencer Research Library's Collection of Manuscripts and Books

The Spencer Research Library's collection of manuscripts and early printed books is a hidden jewel on the KU campus. Its rare objects include Egyptian papyrus scrolls, Sumerian clay tablets, hand- written and decorated medieval books and folia and early printed books. Join us for a look at this fascinating collection and consider the materials and methods used for creating them. For the first two weeks, we'll meet at the Osher St. Andrews campus. The last session will be held at the Spencer Research Library. Transportation to the Spencer Research Library is required and will cost $15.  This course has been postponed due to instructor illness. We will keep you updated on the new date.
