Redwood Library’s “Treasures of the Redwood: Celebrating 275 Years”

(Ongoing) In celebration of its 275th year, this exhibition will bring forth a rich selection of some of the Redwood’s unparalleled holdings, gathered over nearly three centuries of collecting and donations. Starting with rare, annotated works from the Original Collection, to a range of eighteenth-century materials, such as the famous Stiles map, period portraits and sculptures, manuscripts, furniture and artifacts. Also featured will be supremely rare works from the Cary collection of pattern and decorative art books, as well as the private notebooks of American portraitist Charles Bird King, a cache of rare French decorative drawings, and a range of books only known in a single copy from the Redwood. Admission is free.
