A little bit of Manchester in MIT

This is the last and final stage of the Books and Beasts/Venetian Vellum tour are at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) organized by Jana Dambrogio, Conservator MIT Libraries, Curation and Preservation Services. We arrived in the snow, but luckily it did not last too long.

Snow!

Snow!

Whilst Jana showed us the collections and a copy of the Nuremberg Chronicles, 1493, Steve saw that it had a ownership stamp showing that it originated with the Egerton family in Tatton, Manchester. He is looking forward to investigating the provenance history on his return to Manchester.
