Exhibiting the full range of the Manuscripts and Rare Books Department of the Hispanic Society of America, Treasures from the Hispanic Society Library, which accompanied the eponymous Grolier Club exhibition, relates the history of Spain and the spread of its language and culture to the Americas through manuscripts and printed books. It also tells the story of Archer M. Huntington, the founder of the Hispanic Society, whose passion for books and Spain led him to form one of the most important collections of Spanish and Hispanic books in the world. Featuring medieval charters, holograph royal letters, sailing charts from the Age of Exploration, letters patent of nobility, manuscript Bibles, books of hours, indigenous manuscripts from the Americas, as well as historical, scientific, and literary manuscripts, this lively volume provides a visual guide to the history of Spain and Latin America.
