Behind the scenes at the Bodleian library

IMG_3171

I spent this morning at the Bodleian library up in Oxford, leafing through the published works of James Parkinson in preparation for an upcoming exhibition on his life at the library. I felt very privileged to handle some of the rare 18th and 19th century manuscripts that the Bodleian has locked away in its vaults, and am very much looking forward to the exhibition in a few months time!
