Big Book, Little Book

Big Book, Little Book

Wandering through the stacks earlier this week, we found ourselves a bit goggle-eyed upon discovering this enormous volume of newspaper clippings from the George Tinkham Papers. For comparison, we’ve placed it next to The Bible in Miniature, or, A Concise History of the Old and New Testaments, an 1805 volume from our miniature books collection.

P.S. These aren’t the biggest or littlest books in our collections.

P.P.S. Surprisingly, the big book is not as heavy as it might seem.

  1. Thanks for pointing that out! We’ve changed the licensing on the photos in the Duke University Libraries’ Flickr photostream that we control. The photos at our Duke Yearlook and Jazz Archive photostreams should have Creative Commons licenses as well.
