This exhibition reflects the country’s variety: French printing; the reign of Louis XIV; works by dramatists Corneille and Dumas; an original Voltaire letter; maps of Paris; foods and fashion; science; travel; novels by Rabelais, Hugo, and Camus; and poetry by Baudelaire and Apollinaire.

In addition, a suite of engravings of New Zealand birds drawn by French artists. Except for a few items from private collections, all of the materials on display are from the University of Otago Special Collections. Profitez-en!

‘Tout homme a deux pays, le sien et puis la France’ (‘Every man has two countries - his own and France.’) – Charlemagne, in Henri de Bornier’s La Fille de Roland (1875)
