The John and Mary Nichols Rare Books and Special Collections are comprised of rare books and special materials in English, European, and American literatures dating from the 15th century to the present. A collection of general rare books, including several incunables, and a Bible collection complement the focal literature collections. These collections offer opportunities for interdisciplinary research in such fields as literary studies, the history of printing, and religion. The collection is open by appointment. Please contact JoAnn Palmeri
