Howard W. Gunlocke Rare Book and Special Collections Room

A selection of books from the Maguire Celtic Book Collection, donated to the library by Mrs. Rose Maguire Saul Zalles. It was formed from her own books and a collection she acquired from a renowned Celtic scholar. It has extensive materials on seven Celtic-speaking peoples: Irish, Scots-Gaelic, Manx, Welsh, Gaulish, Breton and Cornish. The scope of this collection includes many aspects of Celtic civilization: art, history, language, literature and folklore.
