This exhibit provides an overview of the wide range of materials included in the Bentley Rare Book Museum collections. Items were selected based upon their significance to the historical period from which they came, or their relevance to selected themes.
More than just an exhibition of objects, "Pleasures and Treasures" was an opportunity for scholarship by faculty, staff, and students at the university. The essays included in the catalog below illustrate the active use of the collection in teaching and research. The Rare Book Museum is a living resource, continually expanded and improved upon through the contributions of the community.Media
