About the Exhibit & Our Collection

The online exhibit is based on the physical exhibit, "Beauty for Commerce: Publishers' Bookbindings 1830-1910", that was on display from March 25, 2002 to August 1, 2002. This exhibit was presented in the Rare Books and Special Collections Library at the University of Rochester Rush Rhees Library (2nd Floor).

Many of the publishers' bindings in our collection are located in a single collection. This link to Voyager, our online catalog, will allow you to browse the records for all those items. For more information about these and the other publishers' bindings in our collection, please contact Andrea Reithmayr.
