Lilly Library Curation Internship- Week 5

I’m back from the Book History Workshop! Only for a week, though. Next week I will be in Baltimore attending the Rare Book and Manuscript Society conference.

This week I pulled more stacks materials and my 6 Degrees of Francis Bacon have begun to gel a little bit. I’ve got a long way to go, but I have come up with some connective chains outside of England and begun trying to find way to connect them back to Francis Bacon. I seem to be quite far behind Emily, however. She has created several chains now and has a really robust map of connections to Bacon. I really like the work she’s been doing, and I wish I had a bit more time to catch up!
