Exhibit

This exhibit features some of the earliest, rarest, most beautiful, or most unusual Dutch and Flemish books, manuscripts, and maps held by the University of Michigan Library. Many items on display come from a collection of materials from The Netherlands and Belgium that is among the strongest in the United States. Most of the maps are hand-colored examples with elaborate cartouches, and some show lovely many-masted sailing ships and sea monsters scattered over the oceans.

Open Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
