Curated turns us onto this new exhibition, which if nothing else will have some very handsome looking books.
“On view at New York’s Grolier Club through November 20, 2010, John Wiley & Sons: 200 Years of Publishing covers one families dedication to the the transmission of knowledge through writing. Rare and first editions are exhibited, tracing the development of the publishing industry and the growth of the United States. Included is Herman Melville’s Typee and Edgar Allen Poe’s Tales.
Those two titles alone are enough to peak my interest. Should you be interested too, but live away from New York, click here for the online exhibition.”
