A Rare Occasion: Acquisition Night at the George Peabody Library

Friday, October 27, 2017
5–7 pm, with brief remarks at 5:45 pm

We are assembling an extraordinary collection of approximately fifty candidates for acquisition and conservation. You are invited to view these unique items, chat with curators and conservators, and help support and advance scholarship at Johns Hopkins University by adopting a rare volume. Mix and mingle with fellow bibliophiles after-hours in the stunning Cathedral of Books, with signature cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, exhibition viewing of Bibliomania, and live strings music.

RSVP to or 410-516-7943. Valet parking will be available.
