This collection gives Carleton students an opportunity to work with facsimiles of important manuscripts and maps from Europe, the New World, and the Middle East.  The manuscript facsimiles cover a time period from the 4th through the 16th centuries.  The map facsimile collection centers around maps from the Age of Exploration and Discovery, providing a visual chronology of Europe's encounter with the rest of the world.
