Share this article

The New York Times has an article about the acquisition by Yale of the Anthony Taussig collection of English legal rare books and manuscripts (the Yale Law Library has acquired part of the Taussig printed books, including a copy of the first English law book ever printed, and the Beinecke Rare Book Library has acquired the entire Taussig manuscript collection). The Taussig collection may well be the greatest private collection of English legal rare books and manuscripts ever assembled. Proceed to the New York Times article.
