Guides into Tongues: Multilingual Dictionaries and Grammars at CRRS

PA2361 .C34 1534 Title Page.JPG

This exhibit traces the development of a bilingual and multilingual dictionary tradition from its roots in the early reference tradition of humanist scholarship to educational volumes where language itself was the object of curiosity. Along the way we will see the solidification of organizational and typographic conventions that link language reference books from the early modern period to those that we use in language classrooms today. The volumes showcased here are only a small selection of CRRS's rich holdings in this area, and have been selected to be both visually and historically interesting.
