Highlighting PSU Library Special Collections’ Middle East Studies collection, this exhibit drew on a range of 17th- and 18th-century Western studies of the Middle East from fundamental academic works to popular memoirs and featured rare examples of cartography, scientific and landscape illustration, and early printing in Arabic. Materials in this collection have been acquired with generous support from the PSU Middle East Studies Center, the Gordon Hunter Fund, Gary and Patricia Leiser, and the Tarbell Family Foundation.
