Legally Binding: Fine and Historic Bindings from the Yale Law Library

  • (All day)
  • Level L2, Law Library

Many of the historic volumes in the Lillian Goldman Law Library are significant not only for their texts, but for their extraordinary bindings. Over thirty of these are featured in the Rare Book Collection's Spring 2019 exhibition, "Legally Binding: Fine and Historic Bindings from the Yale Law Library." The curators of the exhibition, Michael Laird (Michael Laird Rare Books, Lockhart, Texas) and Michael Widener (Rare Book Librarian, Yale Law Library), selected bindings for their beauty, craftsmanship, functionality, and historical significance.
