While it covers a wide range of dates, a number of the objects are pre-1600.
These include a Chinese scroll explaining the beginning of Taoism; Korean
type from the 13th Centry and early printing; the first book published in
the Western Hemisphere (1541, Mexico); Copernicus' "A Heliocentric Cosmos";
a 13th-Century CE "De Proprietatibus Rerum" (The Properties of Things); a
14th-Century CE view of the universe as coloured layers; a 15th-Century CE
book that helped move from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar; and a
pagoda scroll from Japan in the 8th Century CE.  Many more items are in the
exhibit itself, if you have a chance to go and look.
