four film adaptations and an electronic edition, with notes and commentary from Cambridge University Press.
The exhibit includes treasured pre-publication volumes signed by the author, Edwin Abbott (1838 –1926). The materials comprising this exhibit are now part of the permanent Flatland collection donated to the Library by Professor Thomas Banchoff.
