New exhibit of Japanese rare books and manuscripts
A major exhibit featuring the Rare Japanese Books collection opened this week. Discovery & Wonder: The Harry F. Bruning Collection of Japanese Rare Books and Manuscripts was curated by Professors Jack Stoneman and Aaron Skabelund and will be on display in Special Collections’ main gallery on level 1 of the library throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. The exhibit includes a number of important items from BYU’s collection and tells the story of how they came to the HBLL.
More information about this exhibit and images from the gallery can be found at the HBLL news blog. For those who can’t visit the library in person, a catalogue will be available in the near future.
