Recently Published: An Americana Sampler: Essays on Selections from the William L. Clements Library

New Publication Highlights Scope of Library’s Collection

The Clements Library is proud to introduce its latest publication. An Americana Sampler: Essays on Selections from the William L. Clements Library includes eighteen contributions by Library staff and University of Michigan historians.

The 185-page, cloth-bound book presents examples of collections and topics dating from the sixteenth to the early twentieth century. The essays suggest the wealth and variety of the Clements holdings and the opportunities for research they provide. Beautifully designed by Kathy Horn, the volume includes more than 190 full-color photographs of the Library and its collections.

Publication of this book was made possible by the generous support of the McGregor Fund of Detroit. Copies are available from the Clements for $40.00 (ISBN 978-0-615-46683-5). See the Clements Library Book Store for ordering information or call 734-764-2347 for further details.
