The Huntington is a magical place where people can escape the busy-ness of everyday life. It is a place apart, both in unparalleled beauty and in the depth and breadth of its collections. The Library is one of the world's great research libraries, housing some nine million items. The Art Collections feature European works spanning four centuries beginning in the early Renaissance, and American works that date from the late seventeenth century to the late twentieth. The Botanical Gardens are home to some 15,000 species in more than a dozen principal garden areas. This lavishly illustrated volume explores not only who the Huntingtons were and what comprises the institution today, but additionally what is being newly discovered by scholars, curators, teachers, and students as they explore the collections.
