The HSLS tribute to Robert Burton’s (1577-1640) influential work, The Anatomy of Melancholy, is the current mini exhibit in the Falk Library lobby display case. The exhibit presents different editions of the book from the HSLS collections as well as other books about this masterpiece. A plasma screen above the display case displays excerpts from the 4th and oldest edition of The Anatomy of Melancholy, published in London in 1632. This edition is usually housed in the library’s Rare Book Room. Please stop by and visit the display case during regular library hours.
