Fine and Rare III: Musical Marvels of Special Collections Unveiled

Fine and Rare III: Musical Marvels of Special Collections Unveiled Online

Music played a surprisingly important role in the early history of the Libraries' Special Collections, the University's repository for rare books, manuscripts, and early calculating devices and cryptographic machines. Thanks to resources like the Charles J. Rosenbloom Collection, music students, researchers, and enthusiasts alike have access to significant historical documents from the field.

In this themed installment of Fine & Rare, Curator of Special Collections Sam Lemley shares a number of rare and early printed editions of works by well-known composers, including Beethoven, Bach, and Brahms. Join Lemley and special guest Mary Ellen Poole, the Stanley and Marcia Gumberg Dean of the College of Fine Arts, to revisit this story and learn about some of the Libraries' musical treasures.
