Rosenbach Lectures in Bibliography

From: Daniel Traister <traister>
Date: Saturday, January 11, 1992
The 1992 Rosenbach Lectures in Bibliography will be presented at the Van
Pelt-Dietrich Library Center of the University of Pennsylvania on March
17, 19, and 24 by Wolfgang Milde, manuscripts librarian at the Herzog
August Bibliothek in Wolfenbuttel, Germany.  Dr. Milde's topic is "The
Gospels of Henry the Lion," a remarkable illuminated manuscript
auctioned in 1983 and retrieved (as a national treasure) for Germany at
that time.  It is now housed at the Herzog August Bibliothek.

The Rosenbach Lectures are open to the public without charge.  You and
any interested readers, friends, art historians, medievalists,
Germanists, etc., are welcome to attend any and all of these lectures if
you can make it to Penn.  Receptions will start at 5 P.M. on each
evening; the lectures themselves start at 5:30.

Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center is located at 3420 Walnut Street but
entrance to the Library is from Locust Walk (south of Walnut Street).
The entrance is marked by an unmistakable Claes Oldenburg statue of a
broken button.  Nearby parking is available (at a University lot at
Walnut between 36th and 37th Streets on the north, right, side of
Walnut; or at a Sheraton Hotel lot--Independence Hall Parking--on 34th
and Chestnut Streets, entrances from both Chestnut, on the north, left
side of the street, or 34th, on the west, right, side of the street).
Bring a photo i.d. if you can for the benefit of the Library's
doorguards.  Elevators in the entrance lobby will take you to the sixth
floor; turn left.  Receptions will be held in the Henry Charles Lea
Library; lectures will be presented in the Lessing J. Rosenwald Gallery.
