America in Characture
"This online exhibition highlights selections from a rich collection of political cartoons in the Lilly Library. The caricatures depict times of turbulence in American history and range in date from the Revolutionary War to the War of 1812 and to the presidential elections of 1860 and 1864 which brought Abraham Lincoln to the White House. To facilitate browsing, the exhibition is divided by time period and includes a section on the history of caricature. "

Book of the Deer
From Firth's Celtic Scotland, this site highlights an early illuminated manuscript, The Book of The Deer. "A small but rather wide 8vo form of eighty-six folios (twenty of which are illustrated here). It contains the Gospel of St John and portions of the other three Gospels; a fragment of an office for the Visitation of the sick, the Apostle's Creed; and a charter of King David I to the clerics of Deer. The notices in Gaelic of grants made to the monastery of Deer are written on blank pages or on the margins. These texts are thought to be the oldest examples of Gaelic writing from Alba." (Scotland)
