About the Exhibition
The materials in this online exhibition were displayed in the LSU Libraries’ Division of Special Collections (Hill Memorial Library) from January 24 to March 6, 2010, in conjunction with a traveling exhibition, Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic and Medicine, sponsored by the National Library of Medicine and hosted by LSU’s Middleton Library. Drawn primarily from the Rare Book, McIlhenny, and Rhoades Collections, the items included here reflect the library’s strong holdings in early-modern science, religion, and philosophy.
