Old, old, old

One nice thing about working in a academic library is that however old it might make YHB feel on a regular basis, sometimes something happens that puts that in a bit of perspective. Today I got to handle our Nuremburg Chronicles, which was published five hundred and fifteen years ago this past Saturday. The covers look a little worse for wear, but you can still read it. I mean, if you can read Latin, and that gothic print. So probably not. Beautiful paper, though.
