Pequot Library Association Annual Meeting Nov.11th

Sunday, November 11, 2012, 04:00pm

Child’s Play in Pequot’s Historical Collection

presented by:
George MilesWilliam Robertson Coe Curator, Yale Collection of Western Americana,
Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library
The Pequot Library Collection at Yale is renowned for extraordinary rarities including an early edition of Columbus’s first letter to the King and Queen of Spain, and the first edition of John Eliot’s translation of the Holy Bible into the language of the Massachusetts Indians. Come hear about some of the most intriguing and unexplored material in the collection. Tiny, worn, and often housed in the paper wrappers in which they were originally issued, these locally produced “text books,” early American primers, offer a fascinating window to early American history.
Please join us for a short business meeting, including the election of new Trustees, followed by the presentation, with reception to follow.
All PLA members are welcome to attend. Join today!
(The public is welcome to attend the meeting and presentation, however only PLA members can vote.)
