Current Exhibit

Gonzalo Fernández de Oviedo’s Natural and General History of the Indies, Islands and Mainland of the Ocean Sea: An Exhibition

On View Sept 13 - Dec 12, 2022 - Main (Thompson) Library

The Library is pleased to partner with the Department of Hispanic Studies in presenting Gonzalo Fernández de Oviedo’s Natural and General History of the Indies, Islands, and Mainland of the Ocean Sea. This exhibition provides an opportunity to bring added visibility to the department’s Oviedo Project. This multi-year effort represents the first attempt to translate into English the full text of Oviedo’s work, and Vassar students are playing an important role. The exhibition also gives a chance to highlight the recent acquisition of related materials in the Main Library and the Archives & Special Collections Library.
