This past year, the Fisher was fortunate to add to its collections what is currently the oldest English-language printed book in Canada: William Caxton's Cicero, printed in 1481. However it is not the only important acquisition the library has acquired over the last 12 months. In fact, it's not even the only signficant English-language book the library purchased: for example, the first English translation of Thomas More's A Fruteful and Pleasant Worke of the Beste State of a Publyque Weale - better known as Utopia - printed in London in 1551 was also bought. There were other notable purchases, from rare cookbooks to Czech pop-up books, to materials added to some of your long-standing and popular collections, including our medical and Joseph Brabant Lewis Carroll collections.
The latest issue of The Halcyon, the newsletter of Friends of Fisher, contains an overview of some of the library's recent acquisitions. It is now available online as a downloadable PDF via this link. While you're at it, please check out our full list of back issues of The Halycon,
