Hands-On Tour: Herman Melville
Thu, August 1, 2019 6:30 P.M.
With a warm heart for human nature, a cold eye for the human condition, and prose that would awe a Biblical prophet, Herman Melville was too good for his time. Join us for an odyssey through the Rosenbach’s mighty Melville collection. We’ll chart our course toward the source of Melville’s greatness through original editions of his novels and handwritten letters. “It is not down in any map,” says Moby-Dick’s Ishmael, “true places never are.” After the tour stay for Continuing The Conversation to discuss the program with our curators while enjoying light refreshments.
Hands-On Tours allow you unparalleled access to rare and important items that are not usually on view to the public. Space is limited and advance registration is strongly recommended.
