Six Books that Look Like They Belong at Hogwarts: Book 1
I posted a teaser about this book on Twitter last week, and now it’s time to unveil its true identity! We’ve gathered six books from Special Collections that we think are worthy of a wizard’s library. Of all the books in our collections, this one reminds us most of the screaming book from Harry Potter. You know, this one:
Maybe it’s the spikes. Despite its rather menacing appearance and large size, this isn’t a book of dark spells. It’s actually an edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy printed in Florence in 1911. The woodcuts are reproduced from a 1491 edition. Only 300 copies were printed, and ours is number 12. MERLIN catalog record
This post is based on a special “mini-exhibit” we held in the Ellis Library Colonnade last week - just a librarian, a student assistant, and a table full of great books. We showed them off and talked to anyone who wanted to stop by. It was great to meet so many students and talk to them about the amazing stuff we have in Special Collections.
If you’re in Columbia, look for us in the Colonnade with a different selection during finals week. And if you’re not, watch our Tumblr. We’ll be posting a book from the Hogwarts mini-exhibit each week.
Because you know, I needed EVEN MORE reasons why my alma mater is awesome. 10 points to the Ellis Special Collections crew.

"We are more than a bit concerned with the Benihana egg trick called for in the script. I’ve tried it and can only get it 1 out of 4 tries, and I’ve seen Benihana chefs flub the manoeuver when they have an entire grill as target. Mads has to crack his eggs into a 8-inch diameter skillet. The props Master calls his guy. The Production Manager calls in his guy. I call my guy. On the morning of the shoot we have 8 dozen eggs and 3 Japanese chefs with their hands made up to be hand doubles.
I guess I don’t have to tell you that when Mads arrives on set, he just tosses an egg up in the air and the egg breaks on the spatula. No problem. Unbelievable. I insist it was a lucky fluke but he does it again. I accuse him of practicing when I wasn’t looking but he laughs (as if he has time to practise egg-cracking between scenes) and tells me he was a juggler in his youth.” [x]
And here we all thought we’d have a million outtakes of Mads flubbing the egg trick…
