What’s in the box?

Last week I posted a picture on our Facebook page of a 320-pound special delivery we received.  Are you dying to know what's in the box?

It's a wonderful collection of rare Kipling first editions and other Kiplingiana, donated to the Libraries by the estate of a generous donor, Helen Jenkins.  Staff members took a first look at the collection yesterday and found some great materials, including first editions, pamphlets, ephemera, and limited editions.

We will be working on cataloging this collection and making it available to researchers in the Special Collections reading room.  Email SpecialCollections@missouri.edu with any questions.
