A special look at rare scientific works


On Nov. 28, Stephen Skuce, MIT Libraries’ rare books program manager, will lead a tour of the exhibition “Magnetic Resonance: Four Centuries of Science from the Vail Collection.”


The one-hour tour and talk will take place at the Maihaugen Gallery (14N-130) at 3 p.m.

The exhibit, which runs through Dec. 27 and is curated by Skuce, features 16th century samples from the expansive Vail Collection. These include writings inscribed by famous scientists, colorful works of popular science, and other treasures from the collection.

Many of these unique materials are currently on public view for the first time, made possible after an extensive cataloging and conservation project.
