Book of the Month

Somerville cannot boast an original seventeenth-century library or the collection of an eighteenth-century alumnus. But it does have a number of antiquarian books, given or bequeathed by old members over the years – and a book doesn’t have to be centuries old to be interesting! Each month we display an item from our closed stack collection, and add a post about it to our Book of the Month blog. We hope you find this informative, and perhaps even entertaining.
