Latest issue of the Halcyon now available

First page of June 2015 issue of the Halcyon

Curious to know about some of our recent acquistions, such as the sumptous Works of Geoffrey Chaucer (1896) from William Morris' Kelmscott Press? Or want to know about an innovative American paperback series called Paper Books issued at the end of the 1920s by the publishers Albert and Charles Boni? Or perhaps you want to read about a collection of Japanese menus from the late 17th century. These and much more can be read in the latest issue of The Halcyon, the newsletter of the Friends of the Fisher Library.

The June 2015 issue also highlights the Media Commons recent acquisition of the Greg Gatenby Spoken Word Collection, consisting of over 1,700 recordings of almost every major 20th author, including many Canadian writers, articles on speciman books for both insects and plants, along with a tribute to the Fisher's first modern manuscripts librarian Rachel Grover, who died this past spring.
