The Anthony Taussig Collection of English Legal Manuscripts, recently acquired by Yale, brings together historically significant texts such as the Magna Carta with unique and often deeply personal sources that reveal the day-to-day experiences of lawyers and their clients across the centuries. Curatorial assistant Andrew S. Brown (PhD student, English) will introduce some of the complex histories behind these items from the exhibit on the Taussig collection, Uncommon Law, which is on display at the Beinecke as part of Reading English, an exhibition on view until Dec. 15.
