What is a facsimile?

A facsimile is an accurate copy, particularly of written or printed material. Special Collections and the Jenkins Architecture, Design, and Art Library both hold many facsimiles of manuscript books. By performing an advanced search in the library search box, you can find facsimiles by selecting the subject field and entering the phrase "Illumination Of Books And Manuscripts."
