The Taschenbuch Collection

About Me

Calender der Musen und Grazien für das Jahr 1796.

I am a rising junior in the College majoring in English Language and Literature and Philosophy. My interests range across politics, law, and the humanities. As an avid reader, I have long been fascinated with books, and the opportunity to explore the relationship between text and materiality in the Taschenbuch Collection has proved ideal.

I worked this summer under Elizabeth Frengel, Curator of Rare Books in the University’s Special Collections, with a grant supplied by the College Summer Institute 2023. Thanks in particular to Elizabeth, Sem C. Sutter, and Dr. Catriona MacLeod, without all of your help and invaluable scholarship, this work would have proved impossible.
