This 1631 copy of Lucan’s ancient poem Pharsalia belonged to William Bradford and was signed by him on flyleaf. Bradford was likely serving as Governor of Plymouth Colony when he acquired it. The epic recounts the fall of the Roman Republic and reflects on the destructiveness of civil conflict. It may have had special meaning for Bradford, facing his own challenges in keeping Plymouth Colony together. This special loan is only on display now through the end of the 2021 season.
