Rare Book Digital Collection

     USM Libraries Digital Collection also has a collection devoted to rare books.  Many of the materials found in the collection concern history of the South, the Civil War, and the history of printing.  Other topics are covered in the materials as well.  The Rare Book Collection also is home to 3500 books that belonged to Cleanth Brooks and over 800 books that make up the Sam Woods Collection. 

     This is the picture of the cover of The Poems of Goethe.  This book was published in 1874 and written by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.  The original book was written in German and has been translated into English by Edgar Alfred Bowring.
