Durham Cathedral Library MS B.II.34 - Florus of Lyons, Collectaneum in epistolas Pauli (Corinthians-Hebrews)

Florus of Lyons, Collectaneum in epistolas Pauli (Corinthians-Hebrews) written in England in the later 12th century. Digitised November 2018 as part of the Durham Priory Library Recreated project Due to the binding, there are many images throughout the volume with marginalia not visible in the image because they are too far into the gutter. Sometimes missing marginalia on the recto is visible on the overlap on the preceding verso image. The volume contains a number of small parchment stubs. In order to make them lay flat, they have been photographed inside Secol archival pockets which are visible in the final image.

Great Trading Routes of the Sahara

This 1889 map of trans-Saharan trading routes by French explorer Edouard Blanc reflects the growing priority that Europeans gave to land-based trade during the late 19th-century imperial “scramble for Africa.” In articles about his work, Blanc stressed the importance of identifying “natural” geographic routes that would connect French colonial possessions in west Africa, such as Senegal, to Algeria in north Africa, and link the Mediterranean coast to Sudan and central Africa. Blanc based his maps not only on his own travels but also on nearly a century of reports from European travelers dating back to the Englishman W. G. Browne’s 1793 voyage to Darfur. Features identified on the map include dunes, rivers, and dry valleys as well as Arab caravan routes, colonial railways, and roads. The routes of several European explorers also are documented, including Gustav Nachtigal’s 1869 expedition to Sudan, Oskar Lenz’s travels from Morocco to Timbuktu in 1880, the 1880 voyage to Sudan by the Italians Matteucci and Massari, and several French expeditions from the Algerian coast, including that of Colonieu in 1860 from Oran and of Flatters from Constantine in 1880-81.

Chola Woman, Full-Length Portrait, Standing, Facing Right, La Paz, Bolivia

This photograph of a Bolivian woman is from the Frank and Frances Carpenter Collection at the Library of Congress. Frank G. Carpenter (1855-1924) was an American writer of books on travel and world geography whose works helped to popularize cultural anthropology and geography in the United States in the early years of the 20th century. Consisting of photographs taken and gathered by Carpenter and his daughter Frances (1890-1972) to illustrate his writings, the collection includes an estimated 16,800 photographs and 7,000 glass and film negatives. Max T. Vargas, a noted Peruvian photographer and postcard publisher who worked in La Paz, Bolivia, in the early part of the 20th century, took the photograph.

Antietam, Maryland. Allan Pinkerton, President Lincoln, and Major General John A. McClernand: Another View

At the outset of the U.S. Civil War, Mathew Brady dispatched a team of photographers to document the conflict. Among them was a Scottish-born immigrant named Alexander Gardner, the photographer who took this photo of Lincoln at Antietam as well as other famous wartime shots. The man to Lincoln's right is Allan Pinkerton, founder of the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, whom Lincoln had as head of a personal security detail during the war. Gardner titled another shot of Pinkerton and his brother William at Antietam “The Secret Service.” Gardner photographed Lincoln on seven separate occasions, the last one on February 5, 1865, only a few weeks before Lincoln’s assassination. In 1866 he published Gardner’s Sketchbook of the War, combining plates and text, commemorating such battles as Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, and Petersburg, but the book was a commercial failure. Photographic historians also have suggested that Gardner staged many of his photos, moving dead bodies and using a regular prop gun to create romanticized pictorial narratives.
