Sermones Parati de Tempore et de Sanctis

This is a rare (only copy in America), first edition of a collection of sermons in Latin created by the Roman Catholic Church in the 15th century. More than likely, it was to provide standard, timely, and spiritual homilies appropriate to be performed at mass throughout the church year. Library catalogs note “Parartus” as author; this individual's actual identity is yet to be determined.

Have a Holly, Jolly...September!

The first noel, a christmas pop up book

The Libraries isn't exactly pushing the season, but our Cataloging department must review and process titles such holiday-themed now, in preparation for the upcoming season. This particular item, after it has entered our system, will then be sent to our preservation department, in preparation for our planned exhibition of pop-up and movable books, Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop & Turn.
