The Stolen Texts of Molière

Friday, July 1, 2005 to Wednesday, August 31, 2005

This exhibition examines how seventeeth-century publishers pirated, plagiarized, and mis-appropriated Molière's plays. Drawing on the Walter L. Pforzheimer Molière Collection, it will feature rare first editions displayed alongside even rarer counterfeit editions. The exhibition traces the production and distribution of these illegal copies. There will be a lecture in conjunction with the opening of this exhibit. [About 30 items]
