Join Huntington staff members Stephen Tabor (Curator of Rare Books), Joel Klein (Molina Curator for the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences) and Holly Mendenhall (Digital Projects Manager) for a discussion on incunabula in The Huntington's collections. These rare books printed before 1501 have long held great interest to librarians and historians of the book. Panelists discuss how these rare books came to be in The Huntington's collections, the various tools used for the study of medical incunables, and our efforts to digitize these materials. This talk is the first in a series presented by the Library Reader Services Department.

The lecture is held online via Zoom. Attendees will be able to ask questions during the lecture. Zoom link will be sent to attendees in registration confirmation email.
