|Arents Collection of Books in Parts|
The collection holds many drawings by nineteenth-century English artists, the originals of illustrations prepared for books acquired by the collection. Among those represented are Rowlandson (nine original drawings for the English Dance of Death and other items), George Cruikshank, Habl˘t K. Browne ("Phiz"), Millais, and Kate Greenaway. Many books in parts are themselves fine examples of the illustrated book.
