Special Collections: Open House
April 24, 2019
5:00 p.m. – 7:00 pm.
From the writings of Aristotle and Galen to the 20th century skepticism of Popper, the history of science has been given shape by monumental achievements in writing. These books - Galileo’s Dialogue, Newton’s Opticks, or Lavoisier’s Elements of Chemistry and many more - have served as milestones which changed the course of human affairs.
Join us in the William Ready Division of Archives and Research Collections for a first-hand look at these and other iconic scientific texts, dating from the 12th century to the present day.
