Rauner Special Collections Library

Rauner Special Collections Library at Dartmouth College is home to a number of rare books, manuscripts, and other archival material - ranging from Babylonian clay tablets to original work by Theodor Geisel, aka "Dr. Seuss," Dartmouth class of 1925. For those of us who can't make the trip to Hanover, New Hampshire, the Rauner Special Collections Library offers this frequently updated blog dedicated to its eclectic collection. One recent entry highlights Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War, which was published in 1866 and documented the American Civil War. Another recent entry, published on October 13, 2017 (Oct. 9 is celebrated in various parts of the Americas as either Columbus Day or Indigenous People's Day), calls attention to the Bartolome De Las Casas's 1558 book A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies, a text that documented the violence of sixteenth century colonialism in the Caribbean. Individual entries include photographs of rare items and are tagged by subject to enable easy browsing.
