Nearly 100 examples of lavishly illustrated books, representing more than 500 years of printing, are on view. The volumes, ranging from invaluable works published before 1500 to contemporary artists' books produced at the end of the 20th century, record explorations of the physical world, journeys of the intellect, and flights of the imagination.
