Catalogue Exhibition of Rare Cuban Books

Otto G. Richter Library, Catalogue Exhibition of Rare Cuban Books, Coral Gables: University of Miami, 1979.

Excerpt from the Introduction by Mildred Merrick:
In this exhibition we show you Cuba, through the more unusual – the rarer – examples of its literature from the University of Miami’s collections. The gathering together of books and papers from and about Cuba, Florida, the West Indies and South America began with the founding of the University, and the rare books relating to Cuba and the Caribbean form an integral part of our Special Collections. Our recent published six-volume Cuba and the Caribbean provides with some completeness a listing of our Cuban holdings – perhaps forty thousand volumes – and can readily be consulted here or in other large libraries.
