Rare Books presents books, pamphlets, newspapers, and magazines that were banned, forbidden, censored, redacted, expurgated, published anonymously and otherwise attempted to be kept from public consumption. From religious and political writings to science, philosophy and poetry, these pieces of paper were deemed by some too dangerous to exist. On display are first editions of Galileo’s “Dialogo” (1632), Hobbes’ “Leviathan” (1651), Swift’s “Travels” (1726), Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” (1884), Salinger’s “Catcher in the Rye” (1951) and others, too hot to handle hot off the press!
