Myth, Folklore and Legend in the Archives

Shields Library (Lobby - Left Side of Main Staircase)

October 13, 2023 - February 16, 2024

Welcome to Myth, Folklore, and Legend in Archives and Special Collections! For this year’s spooky season, we’re channeling witchy vibes by showcasing items such as Saducismus Triumphatus: Or, Full and Plain Evidence Concerning Witches and Apparition…, A Sensuous Witch and The Witches’ Frolic. Beyond the folklore of witches we also feature the “science” of palm reading, hoaxes gone awry and beasts of legend. Enjoy our sampling of rare illustrations depicting the wonders of the known and unknown.
