Stetson library holds historic treasures

“Careful not to tear the pages, Barbara Costello slowly opened one of the first books that came into Stetson Universitys federal depository collection: a volume containing condolences from throughout the world following the April 14, 1865, assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Detailed artwork is still visible on the outside while the writing inside reveals the “flowery language” of the time.” (via News-JournalOnline.com)
