Catch the Plague! exhibition at NLS

The National Library of Scotland has a new exhibition running from December 11th 2015 to May 29th 2016, entitled Plague! A cultural history of contagious diseases in Scotland.

From the NLS website:

The National Library of Scotland's exhibition examines the plague, cholera, smallpox, and many other contagious diseases that affected Scotland over the past 700 years. Discover how Scotland dealt with contagious diseases, through official and personal papers, religious writings, literature, press reactions and responses from folk medicine and the sciences.

The exhibition, held at George IV Bridge Building, is free to view. For further details, please visit
