Windows on the World

Atlanta Groliers Honor the Memory of David Parsons

Windows on the World (June 15 – August 15, 2015) is an exhibition curated by members of the Atlanta Grolier Club.

David Parsons (1939-2014) loved books, collected them with wisdom and grace, and was a noble friend of libraries. His interests were international in scope and extended from the cradle of printing to modern accounts of travel and exploration. In this exhibit of five centuries of books, maps, photographs, and manuscripts, Atlanta collectors remember their fellow Grolier Club member and celebrate his life and achievements in bibliography.

Books are the windows through which the soul looks out. A home without books is like a room without windows. ~ Henry Ward Beecher
