THE JOHN CARTER BROWN LIBRARY staff and invited curators prepare public exhibitions of material selected from the collections.
|The present exhibition, "Air America," displayed as the second of four special exhibitons on the classical four elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Guest curator, Joyce Chaplin, Harvard University, showcases texts, maps, and illustrations from the Library's collection that reveal the multiple and resonant meanings of air to the history of the Americas.
Recent exhibitions may also be visited virtually. The online version serves as a record of an exhibition and ensures that our audience will be able to view the treasures of the John Carter Brown Library from any place on earth with internet access. Many of these books may be seen in their entirety online on the JCB's Internet Archive site.
