The General Rare Books and Manuscripts Collections include materials from both the humanities and social sciences, including the history of science and technology. These collections contain many unusual or unique items, such as first editions, early imprints, fine bindings, beautifully illustrated books, literary and historical manuscripts, modern small private press poetry from England and the United States, the "little" poetry magazines, and alternative press publications from the U.S. In addition to the above, there are a number of separate special collections in the Department.
