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 22, Curator Dot Porter will bring out LJS 23, sections from a 13th century copy of Thomas de Cantimpré's general introduction to science, including parts of his sections on fish, insects and invertebrates, trees, cosmology and astronomy, herbs, springs, gems, wind and clouds, the four elements, stars, and eclipses. This is one of the earliest known copies of this text, possibly written during de Cantimpré's lifetime. See the record here: https://franklin.library.upenn.edu/catalog/FRANKLIN_9947469813503681
