Summary

With the opening of the Weston Library in March 2015, the Bodleian collections are now available to researchers through facilities designed for the digital age and to the public through both permanent and changing exhibitions. Marks of Genius, the Weston Library's inaugural exhibition, consists of world-changing books, maps and manuscripts from the Bodleian collections, along with some paintings and sculptures. Reviewer Andrew Robinson details the exhibition's scientific works on display, from Pliny the Elder's Historia Naturale to Isaac Newton's Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica.
