Ingenious Exercises: Sports and the Printed Book in Early Modern Europe, 1500-1800

What was the nature of sports in the early modern era, before the widespread preoccupation with rules, records, and Reeboks? And what kinds of books did people write about them? “Ingenious Exercises” addresses precisely these questions. This exhibit of volumes derived from the extensive holdings in the Joyce Sports Collection is open to visitors from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, until December 16th. View the exhibit until 6:00 pm on home football Fridays.
