What do kings, nuns, and poisoners have in common? They are all featured in the Newberry’s French pamphlet collections, recently cataloged as part of a three-year project funded by the Council on Library and Information Resources. Join curator Jessica Grzegorski for a tour as she shares the enduring stories behind these four ephemeral collections: the French Revolution Collection (FRC); Louis XVI Trial and Execution Collection; Saint-Sulpice Collection; and a collection of publishers’ prospectuses, catalogs, and other materials documenting the French book trade.
