Browse the Rare Book Collection

The Rare Book Collection at GSD includes publications that, as defined by the Art and Architecture Thesaurus, are "valuable due to their actual or prospective rarity, and are distinguished by an early publication date, limited issue, historical interest, or a special characteristic of the edition or binding."

Browse some of the books we have digitized using the tabs in the left menu, or to view them in person in the Special Collections reading room go to Request Rare Book Collection Items.
