 April 23 - May 11, 1973

"This exhibition of rare books and maniscripts is the first of its type to be held at Gallery 111, apart from a smaller showing from the same collection in 1972. It gives the University community and the public at large an opportunity to view the unique collection fromed as a memorial to the late Mr. Justice Andrew Knox Dysart. In particular it will give students in the School of Art an opportunity to study manuscripts and books of preceding ages, ranging from the fourteenth century to the early part of the twentieth century."

A collection of Manuscripts, rare booka and private press edition given to the University Libraries in 1953 in honour of Mr. Justice Andrew Knox Dysart, the fourth Chancellor of the University of Manitoba.
