Books in the nineteenth century were important sites of
discourse between readers and authors. This online exhibition
provides a glimpse into how manuscript culture survived and
developed throughout the nineteenth century and how script and
print fed off each other in unexpected ways, generating new
cultural possibilities and an innovative exchange of ideas.
This online exhibition entitled Interactions of Print & Script in the 19th Century is curated by Benjamin Barootes and Tom Mole and brings together digitized print and manuscript items from the holdings of the McLennan Library, McGill Rare Books, and the private collection of Professor Jason Camlot (Concordia University).
A project of the Interacting with Print research group, an FQRSC-funded initiative at McGill University and the Université de Montréal, and Rare Books and Special Collections, McGill University.
