Codices, Chimpanzees, and Curanderas
In September, HCL's Tozzer Library reached a milestone in its 140-year history with the addition of the quarter-millionth volume to its collection of anthropology, archaeology, and ethnology materials.
To mark the occasion, the library is hosting "Codices, Chimpanzees, and Curanderas: From the Field to the Shelf," an exhibition to celebrate the literature of anthropology and to display Tozzer's newest book, Neu-Eroeffnetes Amphi-Theatrum. Woodcuts, such as the one shown at the left, are included the 1723 volume, which is part of a larger, five-part work.
