New Exhibit at the Riesenfeld Center

The Riesenfeld Center has a new fall exhibit on display!  The exhibit, open Monday through Friday, 9am - 4:30pm, offers highlights and, we hope, a good introduction to the Law Library's rare books collection.  Please stop by to see it:

Jewels in the Crown: Highlights from the Arthur C. Pulling Rare Books Collection

Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center
University of Minnesota Law Library
September 15 – December 15, 2014
9 am – 4:30pm

The Pulling Rare Books Collection, one of the outstanding collections of rare legal texts in North America, features a wide array of treasures.  Ranging from early printed Magna Cartas to an edition of Thomas Paine's Common Sense, and from Cherokee laws in the vernacular to fascinating letters to and from Clarence Darrow, this exhibit showcases the strengths of the Pulling Collection and Riesenfeld Center, in light of historical and current collection areas.  

For more about exhibit items, as well as other highlights and news from the Pulling Collection, please stay tuned to this blog.

The fall exhibit is on display in the Riesenfeld Center, on the sub-plaza level of the University of Minnesota Law School, and will run until December 15th.  For more information or directions, please contact Ryan Greenwood (rgreenwo@umn.edu; 612-625-7323).
