Krantz Miniature Book Collection Gift

The Archives & Special Collections recently received a generous gift of 244 miniature book titles from William E. Krantz, F&M class of 1937.  The Helen D. Krantz and William E. Krantz Miniature Book Collection was compiled over the course of several decades.  Numerous subjects, presses, and binding styles are represented, including two with 19th century fore edge paintings.  The miniatures were acquired from book dealers located throughout the United States and Europe, and at Miniature Book Society (MBS) Conclaves.
