If you stare too long he stares back.
This particular AHTL copy of Michael Servetus’s Christianismi Restitutio (a 1790 reprint of the 1553 original) has what looks like a hand drawn copy of Servetus’s portrait.
It is said that only three copies of the original edition of this book survived.  As it is Banned Books Week, it is perhaps worth reflecting upon the fact that so many books do survive despite longstanding suppression.

Lots of Unitarian Universalists are going to this event. Will you be there?

HDS is now only two degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon!
You really never know what you’ll find when processing a collection, and the above photo of a young Kevin Bacon in a church production of The Sound of Music is a perfect example.
Found in the papers of Unitarian Universalist minister and HDS graduate, Victor H. Carpenter, the photo is from Carpenter’s time as minister of the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia, where Bacon’s family attended.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
