Touching History

This weekend I had the opportunity to visit the Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston. There’s nothing quite like being able to handle books printed hundreds of years ago and wonder who else has done the same over the centuries.

For example, this was a Quaker tract printed and circulated in secret in 1676, and over 300 years later, it was in my hands. Amazing. (And you can bet I was super careful when turning the pages!)
