A Modern Love of Literature: One Hundredth Anniversary of Mosher Books
This program, written by Kalamazoo College student Leslie Parsons '91, was created for an A.M. Todd Rare Book Room in 1991 as the 100th anniversary of the start of Mosher Books. The program discusses the college's near complete collection of Mosher Books donated by the late Robert Athol Huston. Mosher Books were made by Thomas Bird Mosher (1852-1923), an independent publisher who wanted to give the American public more access to quality bound books that at the time could be either expensive of poor quality and often quickly went out of print. He worked to bring love of literature to the public and more access to books for booklovers in America.
