Join Executive Director J. Eric Smith and Curator and Chief Historian Megan Stout Sibbel to experience some of the most rarely-viewed, precious objects of the Salisbury House collection in a small group setting as part of the Treasures Tour.
Attendees will receive special access to the Salisbury House Library, and have a chance to examine rare and important books, manuscripts and artifacts, including a leaf from a 1450s Gutenberg Bible, George Catlin’s Portfolio of the North American Indian (1844), Abraham Lincoln documents, and great first editions of the 1920s and 1930s including Ernest Hemingway’s Green Hills of Africa with a personal note from the author to Carl Weeks, a manuscript hand-edited by James Joyce, and others just as special.
The doors will open at 5:30 pm for a wine and cheese reception, and the tour will begin promptly at 6:00 pm. Attendance is limited to 16 guests to preserve the special, intimate nature of the Treasures Tour, thereby allowing all visitors to closely view and experience these priceless documents and objects.
This is only chance you will ever have to see many of these documents. Sign up now to share the excitement!
