This significant exhibition provides glimpses of British America in the 1700s and is designed to complement the Museum's concurrent exhibition "Benjamin West: General Wolfe and the Art of Empire," which features the Clements collection's major painting "The Death of General Wolfe." William L. Clements assembled an outstanding array of primary sources on North America dating between 1492 and 1800, with a heavy emphasis on early European exploration and discovery and the eighteenth-century wars for control of the continent. The exhibition features a mix of rare items from Mr. Clements’s original donation and pieces the Library has acquired since 1923 to complement and enhance its strength in eighteenth-century American history.

Generous support for this exhibition is provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
