A display of boxes, bags, and satchels used for carrying books at different times and places – inspired by the Bodleian's recent acquisition of a book-coffer from fifteenth century medieval Paris.
A 3D model and photos of the coffer are available to view on the University of Oxford’s Cabinet website, which uses digitization to make museum collections more accessible for teaching and research. View the coffer at https://www.cabinet.ox.ac.uk/gothiccoffer.
In addition, Cabinet also includes a 3D model and photos of a deed box, which features in the Thinking inside the Box display. View the deed box at https://www.cabinet.ox.ac.uk/deedbox.
