Join us at the Library at noon on November 2 for this month’s Secrets in the Stacks.

Library Director Mary Sellen will discuss the 1660  atlas  Harmonia Macrocosmica by Andreas Cellarius.  The presentation will focus on the 20 maps from this title that are in the Library’s collections.  Topics will include cosmology, geography, printing, and art.  Be sure to stop by and see another spectacular item from our collections.  While you’re here, check out our current exhibit The Intersection of Art and Science, which features a few of the celestial maps from Cellarius’ atlas.

See you at the Library!
