Instructing and Delighting with the Wetmore Collection

Last Thursday evening Special Collections got a pleasant visit from Kim Nusco and some of the students in her Brown Continuing Studies Class, "To Instruct and Delight: A History of Illustrated Children's Books."

The extensive Wetmore Collection offered examples of children's books through the centuries.
