Treasured Maps at The New York Public Library

Treasured Maps: Celebrating The Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division, a remarkable exhibition of more than 80 rarely seen maps and atlases, has opened at The New York Public Library. The exhibition highlights the depth and breadth of the Library's Map Division holdings, prior to its reopening in December 2005, after a complete renovation. Treasured Maps is on view through April 9, 2006 in the Edna Barnes Salomon Room, at The New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Library, Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Admission is free. To complement the exhibition, the Library will present a series of free curatorial talks beginning in September by Alice Hudson, Chief of the Map Division
