Ole Miss Gets Civil War Medical Book Collection

Just a couple of weeks ago, Dr. D. J. Canale donated his rare Civil War books to the University of Mississippi. The collection focuses on the medical treatments of soldiers. According to the press release, "Canale, who also has collected rare books on other subjects for decades, sold a large group of his books in the last few years at Christie's and Swann Auction Galleries in New York but felt his Civil War-related books should be kept together." If you have two minutes, take a look at this short video of Dr. Canale and his books:
