Watching the American Antiquarian Society

Instead of a Friday review, a Friday 'view' today -- a twelve-minute video describing the American Antiquarian Society: its collections, conservation processes, research projects. Watch for rare book dealer Bill Reese, historians David McCullough, Jill Lepore, and Nathaniel Philbrick, poet Honoree Jeffers, and lots of beautiful books and illustrations. And is that a cameo by our own Jeremy Dibbell?...

Our fall issue features an article on the AAS bicentennial and the current Grolier Club exhibit of AAS treasures, In Pursuit of a Vision.
