Just in time for Valentine’s Day, join us for a peek into the dating rituals of yesteryear with a new exhibition curated by Isabel Planton: Dating Through the Ages. The eight guides to the art of courtship on display span from 1795 to 1962, showing changes in the customs and rules of the dating game from the days of courtship by post to the time of women’s liberation. Selections include a miniature book called The Diamond Etiquette for Courtship and Marriage, a piece of early 20th century sheet music, a campy dating manual from 1930s, and Helen Gurley Brown’s quasi-feminist manifesto, Sex and the Single Girl. #loveandmarriage #courtship #dating #etiquette #helengurleybrown #diamondsareagirlsbestfriend #ladiesofthelilly #nowonexhibit #rarebooks #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram ​​​​#iulillylibrary #btownmuseums

Swipe to see selections from a miniature almanac in the Ruth E. Adomeit Collection from 1802/3 France: Le triomphe de l’esprit des graces et du sentiment (The Triumph of the Spirit of Grace and Feeling). Containing the usual features of an almanac, you might notice something unusual about the calendar itself. It’s for Year XI of the French Republican Calendar. Beginning the calendar anew with the establishment of the French Republic in September 1783, it was an attempt to remove religious and royalist influences from the calendar, as well as to change the standard division of time into decimals. The year was still divided into 12 months, but ones composed of 3 ten-day weeks called decades with day and month names based on nature. How these new divisions and dates correspond to the old calendar are still listed on each page of the calendar, as well as a key detailing the new divisions of seasons. Unpopular and cumbersome, with 5-6 extra days per year and disputes over leap years, the Republican Calendar was abolished in 1805. Its descent can already be seen with the inclusion of saint’s days in the calendar. #almanac #adomeit #ladiesofthelilly #miniaturebooks #frenchrepublicancalendar #yearxi #decimaltime #nivose19 #revolutionarytime #rarebooks #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram #iulillylibrary #btownmuseums

Frostiana, anyone? On the rare occasions that the Thames River froze over in the 17th-19th centuries, frost fairs were set up on the ice with food and entertainment booths, including a portable printing press where souvenir broadsides were printed and sold. This example from 1740 was purchased by a Mr. John Lyell and includes a large woodcut frame and motto extolling the “art and mystery of printing” and a poem “Advice to the Ladies.” Not listed in Foxon or ESTC, we believe it is a unique imprint. Our own Jordan River that runs behind the Lilly Library has frozen (it was -4 yesterday morning!), but no printing press has appeared yet. We’ll let you know if broadsides become available! #icyshackles #frostfair #frostiana #LibraryWonderland @jordan_library #broadsides #thamesriver #printinghistory #rarebooks #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram #jordanriver #iulillylibrary #btownmuseums

#OTD in 1818, Frankenstein was published anonymously in 3 volumes by Lackington, Hughes, Mavor, & Jones. 500 copies were printed, and our copy, in the rare original boards, is ready for a year in the spotlight. @arkhamlibrarian and @bibliodeviant are hard at work on an exhibition showcasing the birth, life, and resurrection of Mary Shelley's famous monster. The exhibition will open in April. Until then, #happynewyear and look for more exhibitions and events coming soon! #rarebooks #bookstagram #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram #btownmuseums #frankenstein #maryshelley #frankenstein200

#TimelineTuesday comes to a close for the semester with the Tianzhu jiang sheng chu xiang jing jie. This book was created by Guilio Aleni, a Jesuit priest stationed in China, to convey the life of Jesus to the local people. The accompanying illustrations are based off engravings in Gerónimo Nadal's "Evangelicae historiae imagines" (Antwerp, 1596) and subtly incorporate the style of Chinese art. (We’ve included images from both for you to compare!) Both the text and illustrations in Aleni’s book were printed using woodblocks, the most common printing technique in East Asia at that time. #fromthepress #Jesuitpriestsandprints #thebookinChina #eastmeetswest #fromengravingtowoodblock #picturepirate #historyofthebook #rarebooks #iulillylibrary #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram #btownmuseums
