For more information on the room, how to request to view rare books, and how to handle them:
Below, you will find a list of the items highlighted during your visit to the Perkins Rare Book Room. The linked titles will take you to the records in Franklin, the Penn Libraries catalog. Click on "Request to view" from a record to let us know you would like to consult an item. You can also set up your Special Collections viewer account from the Research Account page.
If in the catalog record you see that the status/location for an item is listed as "Locked Case" or "Rare Book," you must fill out a request form to view the item.
Items may only be viewed at the Fisher Fine Arts Library. We look forward to see you in our Rare Books Room!
