This month’s Rare Book Display on the Mezzanine level of the University of Portsmouth’s Library has been curated by Emily who we are lucky to have as one of our Student Assistants. Emily has chosen a fascinating and eclectic range of books.  All are beautiful in their own way.  It was fantastic to have Emily’s choices that reflect her diverse interests. Its an eclectic collection – from beautiful portraits of society figures dressed in their finest, divinely bound books and the poetic writings of Oscar Wilde; to the caricatures of Punch and Judy and finally the macabre Hans Holbein.
