Books are printed in a variety of sizes to fit the needs of the reader and the interests of the publisher. The small books in this display can provide a window into both, from the daily prayer book small enough for one’s pocket to the artist’s book utilizing a concertina style. The small and miniature books displayed date from 1685 to 2010 and include travel guides, individual titles from large sets, as well as small press and artists’ books. A few of the books are small enough to qualify as miniature books, that is, books smaller than 3 inches in size. The slip cases of selected titles are also displayed in Archives & Special Collections.

Current / Upcoming Events & Exhibits

Lippincott’s Legacy, April 23-July 15, 2015: On the evening of August 30 1889, J.M. Stoddard, the American editor of Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine, sat down to dinner at London’s Langham Hotel with some rather unlikely dinner companions: Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle. Following that “golden evening” (as Doyle would later recall it), Wilde and Doyle were both commissioned to write novels to be published in their entirety in Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine. The results were the second appearance of Sherlock Holmes in Doyle’s The Sign of the Four (also called the Sign of Four) and Wilde’s only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. The University of Nebraska at Omaha is sponsoring a Lippincott’s Legacy Conference (http://www.lippincottslegacy.org/) on May 30, 2015 celebrating the 125th anniversary of the publication of both novels.
