A stunning selection of medieval manuscripts, printed books and bindings, literary manuscripts, private letters and correspondence, and original music from the Morgan's celebrated collections. Including: a letter from J. R. R. Tolkien containing his commentary on The Hobbit; a 9th or 10th century Coptic manuscript; Beethoven's 10th and last violin and piano sonata; and a volume of Edward Curtis's monumental photographic project The North American Indian, which was funded in part by Pierpont Morgan.
