Miniature Book Exhibition



The University of Iowa Libraries is pleased to present the
electronic exhibition, "Tiny Tomes: The Charlotte M. Smith
Collection of Miniature Books".

In 1996, Charlotte Smith, book collector, author, publisher and
founder of the Tamazunchale Press, presented her personal
collection of over 3,100 miniature books to the University
of Iowa Libraries.  To commemorate that gift the Friends
of the Libraries sponsored a major exhibition, which featured
over 400 items from the collection, during the summer of 1996.

The electronic version of the physical exhibition includes over
150 images, both thumbnail and full-sized of selected items, with
descriptive annotations.  It also includes a complete
descriptive bibliography of all of the items displayed in the
physical exhibition.

The on-line "Tiny Tomes" is available for viewing at the
following URL:
