Polus Antarcticus / Ioannes Ianssonius excudit

This double week set of new materials brings online the first digitized materials from the fantastic collection of maps and plates newly donated to Special Collections: The John F. Smith, III and Susan B. Smith Antique Map Collection. As well, a collection of rare plates and images of Shakespeare mounts the digital stage. A few newly digitized popular cultural story paper issues and dime novels make up the audience! Waiting stage right, are two new titles from the Villanova Digital Collection. As our own “Winter’s Tale” continues, let us enjoy all of these new treasures fireside with a steaming cup of chocolate.
