The American Enlightenment Treasures from the Stanford University Libraries

Online Exhibit


The American Enlightenment exhibit was a series of 19 display cases in the Peterson Gallery and Munger Rotunda of Stanford University's Green Library, from February 7 through July 15, 2011. The items may be viewed here in an online gallery in categories that mimic those of the physical exhibit. Navigate each display case using the titles at the left, and use the Browse links that you will see at the bottom of each exhibit page to view high-resolution images of the objects in the Stanford Digital Repository.

Additionally, all of the materials selected for this exhibit may also be viewed in the Browse section of this site, without the accompanying curatorial text.
