19th Century Ornithology in the Athenaeum Collections

Athenaeum Librarian Jill LeMin Lee has been pecking around the Athenaeum Archives in search of 19th Century birds to share with our Athenaeum flock for April's First Friday! From breathtaking Alexander Wilson folios to intricate rare book covers, there is something for birds of every feather to enjoy. While you're here, migrate over to the first floor gallery and see our current exhibition.

Refreshments and light snacks will be served.

This is an in person event.
