This is the last of this spring series in books from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. Greta Golick is selecting books with flaps, volvelles, pop-ups, and other moveable parts. Her choice will include 16th century medical and scientific texts up to contemporary work by Paul Johnson (not included in previous sessions). Participants will have a chance to inspect these unique and interesting books themselves.
