David Ellenson Rare Book Exhibit

Welcome to the online David Ellenson Rare Book Exhibit which brings together fine examples of manuscripts, books, bookplates, stamps, maps, and broadsides in digital format.

The Library expresses it thanks to Dr. Howard Sachar, Manager, Image Applications, and his entire staff at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, for helping to make the treasures of the Library available in numerous venues around the globe. Note also that the images are watermarked with the HUC-JIR seal.
