Treasures from the Vault

September 9, 2014 through January 11, 2015

The Morgan is home to some of the world's greatest collections of medieval manuscripts, printed books and bindings, literary manuscripts, private letters and correspondence, and original music. Treasures from the Vault, an ongoing exhibition series, features works drawn from these diverse collections in the sumptuous setting of Pierpont Morgan's 1906 Library. In addition to illuminated manuscripts, music scores, and personal correspondence from the Morgan’s collection, this rotation features a selection of important American documents from the Gilder Lehrman Institute.
