The latest display at the Lowell House Library is that of a group of books produced under the direction of Mr. George Macy of the Limited Editions Club. The volumes have been designed by contemporary artists and printers in a modern spirit, but reflect the original atmosphere of the text.

The most interesting volume on show is DeQuincy's "Confessions of an English Opium Eater", with lithographs by Zenya Gray which catch the atmosphere of the book extremely well. Other volumes represented are Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", grotesquely illustrated by Alexander King; "The Travels of Baron Munchausen", combined with illustrations by John Held; "Jaunts and Jollities by Mr. John Jorrick's", produced by the Merrymount Press; and De La Monte's "Undine" with woodcuts by Allen Lewis.
