"Out of the Ordinary: Gems and Oddities in the Clements Library"
Nov. 4, 2016 – April 21, 2017
Where can you see an ostrich egg collected in the 1800s, a 1787 map of the Western Hemisphere engraved and printed by Armenian monks, and a miniature photo album from 1870?
The Clements Library, of course! The Library has been in collecting mode for Americana almost non-stop since it opened in 1923, and many unusual or extraordinary objects have found a home within its walls.
