Professor Galindo's items:
Note that this item is a substitute for the George Ripley alchemical scroll that we looked at in class, which is too large to examine on the tables in the Beinecke reading room. You can look at digitized images of the Ripley scroll (Mellon MS 41), if you're interested, in the library's Digital Collections..
