News Image California library visit leads Littell ’53 to write about Herrick Library treasures 12/03/15

A visit to California’s Huntington Library in San Marino where historic books and manuscripts sparked an interest in Alan Littell, AU Class of 1953, to take a look at similar holdings of little known and rarely used volumes in the archives of Alfred University’s Herrick Memorial Library. He writes about them here:

A Pair of Alfred and California Libraries Are Home to Historic TreasuresBy ALAN LITTELL ’53

Earlier this year, I spent hours poring over displays of historic books and manuscripts in the vast exhibition hall of California’s Huntington Library, in San Marino, some 15 miles east of Los Angeles.

While there was much to see and mull over, the one item that repeatedly caught my eye was the hall’s centerpiece: a pristine folio, or large format, example of a Bible printed in Mainz, Germany, in 1455 by a tinkerer and craftsman named Johannes Gutenberg.

Let me tell you about it, because, closer to home, it relates to holdings of little known and rarely used volumes in the archives of Alfred University’s Herrick Memorial Library. But first—the Huntington’s awe-inspiring Gutenberg.
