"Evenings in the Library" to Offer
A Rare Chance to View Books

Five "Evenings in the Library," presentations of rare books used by 20 artists as inspiration for new books created for the exhibit "Kings, Hummingbirds and Monsters: Artist's Books at Evergreen," have been scheduled for Oct. 23, and Nov.13 and 27, and for Jan. 8 and 29, 2002, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Evergreen House, 4545 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Each evening, the rare book librarians of The Johns Hopkins University, Cynthia Requardt and Amy Kimball, will show the books selected by four of the exhibiting artists. Books that will be viewed include a 15th-century geometry book by Euclid and a Book of Hours; a 16th-century atlas by Ortelius and a Psalterium; 17th-century works by Aldrovandi, Palladio, Seller, and Blaeu; an 18th-century travel log by a little-known Dutch cartographer; 19th-century works by Gould, Audubon, Northcote, and Greene; and a 20th-century work by Edith Wharton. This viewing in the Garrett Library will be followed by a tour of the exhibition and a careful investigation of the four exhibiting artists' new books. The cost is $8 for Evergreen members and $10 for non-members. There will be a limit of 50 people for each of the "Evenings in the Library" and reservations are necessary.

To make reservations or for information, call 410-516-0341 or visit Evergreen on the Web at http://www.jhu.edu/historichouses. The exhibition "Kings, Hummingbirds and Monsters: Artist's Books at Evergreen" will continue through Feb. 28, 2002.
