The Beinecke Library fills its shelves with rare, unusual, and significant books and manuscripts. This special summer exhibition provides a window into the most recent additions to our collections. From a 12th-century Bible to 18th-century handbooks on weaving and cookery to the original manuscript of The Myth of Sisyphus in the hand of Albert Camus, these recently added treasures display the breadth of research opportunities at the library - one of the world's most significant repositories of cultural artifacts.
