Coffee with a Codex: Treatises on munitions and explosive devices
An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak Curator Dot Porter and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of other curators. Everyone is welcome to attend. On June 8, Curator Dot Porter will bring out three 16th century German treatises on munitions and explosive devices, with many illustrations of the various devices and their uses.
