“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage though time”
The books on display, from the Special Collections Department of Ellis Library, all carry traces of their former owners. Some contain notes in the margins; others hold mementos between their pages. In either case, these traces tell stories not only about the books’ reception but about the lives of those who read them.
