Yale Law Library’s Rare Book Collection has a fascinating new exhibit – “The Remarkable Run of a Political Icon: Justice as a Sign of the Law.” From the Yale Law Library Rare Books Blog:
"Using images from books printed between 1497 and 1788, the exhibit traces the roots of the iconography of Justice, a remnant of the Renaissance that remains legible today. The exhibit features eleven volumes from the Law Library's Rare Book Collection, along with four emblem books on loan from Yale's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library."
The exhibit is on display through December 16, 2011 and will also be online at the Yale Law Library Rare Books Blog. More information here.
