      This is one of two in-gallery videos featured in "Illuminated Palaces: Extra-Illustrated Books from the Huntington Library," an exhibition focused on an eccentric art of a bygone era. Samuel Rudder's "A New History of Gloucestershire" started out as a single volume when it was published in 1779. Sometime in the early 20th century, one copy of it grew into nine volumes as a large quantity of new material was pasted onto blank leaves or sewn into the gatherings in a then-popular process called extra-illustration. One of those nine, shown here, was customized with maps, art prints, clippings, separately published pamphlets, original drawings, an auction catalog, and notes by the collector. This volume is among more than 40 works featured in "Illuminated Palaces: Extra-Illustrated Books from the Huntington Library," which ran from July 27 to Nov. 18, 2013.
