Colonial Perspectives: Works from the Louise Bulkeley Dillingham Collection


The conquest and colonization of the Americas by the Spanish beginning in the fifteenth century generated many important literary works describing all aspects of the the New World and its colonization by the Spanish. This online exhibition catalogues some of these early texts in Bryn Mawr’s collection, all of which are part of an important gift of books given by alumna Louise Bulkeley Dillingham in the early 1960s.


Organized and written by Mark A. Castro, with support from the Mary Patterson McPherson Curatorial Fellowship.
