While perusing the Booth-Bricker Special Collections and Archives Reading Room shelves, it is easy to stumble upon seldom-seen gems.

In addition to beautiful marbled endpapers, The History and Antiquities of the Abbey and Cathedral Church of Peterborough features a vibrant, disappearing fore-edge painting!

To discover your own “hidden treasure,” visit Special Collections & Archives on the third floor of Monroe Library Monday-Friday, 9:00-4:30.


Found in the Archives is a recurring series of crazy cool stuff found in the Monroe Library’s Special Collections & Archives.
