Q. This book isn't old, why is it in Rare Books & Special Collections?



A rare book isn't necessarily an old book. Some books may be signed first editions, some may be limited editions and printed in small numbers.

Some other reasons for inclusion in these collections:

  • the text or edition;
  • the printing or binding is particularly fine;
  • it was once owned by someone important.
