Above is the illustrated title page of one of our editions of Richard Baxter’s, The saint’s everlasting rest, 1677.
You may ask what the title Disco Babe, has to do with a work by Richard Baxter on the saint’s…..the answer is in the picture.
I will buy a coffee for person with the first correct guess, I’ll post a picture of the answer in a couple of days if no one can find it.
It was discovered by Konstantina, the constervator that is currently cleaning and assessing The Angus Library collection. As a result of this she is opening and looking at every item in the collection, many of which have not been touched for well over a decade.
As she continues to clean she will come across gems like this title page which we will share them with you on this blog.Categories: Uncategorized
