TRAD 104: An Introduction To Special Collections


Dr. Albrecht Classen introduces his TRAD 104 students to the UA Library's Special Collections during Fall Semester 2010. He and Ph.D. candidate James K. Howell meet archivist Erika Castaņo who takes them into the Special Collections vault where they look at incunabula and rare books. Dr. Classen shows a collection of Chaucer's works from 1550, examines it's beautiful binding, reads the title page aloud and shows pages from the book. Later he shows students the library's replica of the Codex Manesse, one of the most beautifully illumined German manuscripts originally illustrated between 1304 and 1340.
