The University of Iowa Special Collections has produced four more wonderful videos from their visit to Bauman Rare Books in Las Vegas. The video featured above gives a deliciously close look at a first edition copy of Pride and Prejudice.
You can find the others at the University of Iowa Special Collections’ YouTube Channel:
- The Game is Afoot! On multiple versions of popular works, such as the Sherlock Holmes Canon.
- Et tu, Brute? A closer inspection of a 17th century Shakespeare Quarto, the 1691 Julius Caesar.
- We Go West! On the exceptionally scarce 1848 first edition of William Clayton’s Latter-Day Saints Emigrants’ Guide, the text used by the pioneers of the first mass exodus by American citizens to the West.
