Print Collection

The Print Collection in the Rare Books and Special Collections comprises more than 11,000 original prints representing a wide range of subject matter, styles, and techniques. The major strengths of the Collection are prints on Napoleon and the Napoleonic era, old master and other European prints, and Canadian prints, both historical and contemporary. There are also significant holdings of late eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century caricatures, Japanese woodblock prints, optical views, religious chromolithographs, and American historical prints. A large collection of posters, housed with the Print Collection, is strong in those from the two World Wars, and in travel posters from the 1920s to the 1960s.
