The Law in Postcards: An Exhibit at BC Law

[We have the following announcement.]

Boston College Law Library has a new exhibit on display in the Daniel R. Coquillette Rare Book Room for the fall semester. It features a collection of law-related postcards and trade cards that were given to the law library by Michael H. Hoeflich, John H. & John M. Kane Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Kansas School of Law. Previously, Professor Hoeflich donated two generous gifts of antiquarian and modern Roman law books to the library.

The cards featured in the exhibit were the basis of Professor Hoeflich's book, The Law in Postcards and Legal Ephemera 1890-1962 (The Lawbook Exchange, 2012). It's a fun and colorful exhibit, and interested parties are invited to visit in person! [A “sneak preview” is here.]
