Description

A selection of items on display in the 2017 Monash University Library Rare Books exhibition Tall Tales and True: Journeys real and imagined.

Tall Tales and True is an exhibition of journeys, both real and imaginary. The first few cases are about world exploration, specifically English, Dutch, and French in the 17th and 18th centuries. In those cases are fictional works inspired by those explorations and discoveries. The rest of the cases show examples of different kinds of journeys. These are: Australia, Religious, Immigration, Literary, and Science fiction/fantasy.

The online collection is a mixture of partial and complete digitisations.
