NLM Celebrates 20 Years of Harry Potter!

Just for fun....

For the week of June 26th, NLM hosts a special display of rare books from our world-renowned collections, produced by real-life naturalists like Nicolas Flamel and Paracelsus, who feature as figures in wizarding history in the Harry Potter series; as well as Ambroise ParĂ©, Konrad Gesner, and others whose work in alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy helped shape Western science and influenced Harry Potter. The display is accompanied by the our traveling exhibition Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine, which explores Harry Potter’s roots in the Renaissance and highlights the important ethical topics Rowling’s stories examine.
