Marks of Genius

decoration21 March 2015|20 Sept. 2015

In over four centuries the Bodleian Libraries have assembled, through gift and purchase, an unparalleled collection of books and manuscripts that can be called works of genius. From Shakespeare's First Folio to the Kennicott Bible, this show-stopping exhibition considers how common attitudes towards genius are manifested in the physical form of a number of remarkable books, maps and manuscripts held in the Libraries' collections, and explores ways in which the works of genius found in a university library can be acquired, collected and read.

A must-see exhibition.
