  • Librarian Liberators

    Librarian Liberators

    Is this your notion of a librarian - a gray-haired, bun-coiffed woman?  Of course, this one does not appear to have the requisite spectacles.  When I was teaching and tired of constantly putting on and taking off my glasses (I can see distance like a hawk, but can't read a menu without help) I started wearing an eyeglass necklace. One day after school my principal saw me walking out the door wearing them.  He laughed and teased me about how "only librarians wear those". I pointed to my husband (a librarian) who had come to pick me up, and said, "He doesn't."  My principal blushed, but that seems to be one of the common perceptions about librarians. Far from being the mousy, shushing, bespectacled, gray women of most people's perceptions, librarians come in a variety of packaging (including "guybrarians") and can be ardent defenders of their beliefs.  Take the ALA (American Library Association), for example.

  • Provenances - „Provenienzen“: 42th Seminar held by the German Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association in Cologne in May 2012

    Provenances - „Provenienzen“: 42th Seminar held by the German Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association in Cologne in May 2012

    From 17th to 20th May, 2012, members of the German Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association met in Cologne for their 42th annual seminar. In a series of lectures the problem of provenances and the restitution of looted art and books was discussed with librarians, lawyers and specialists. The history of fate of famous collections were reconstructed, such as the libraries of Victor Manheimer and Elise and Helene Richter. Other lectures centred around the history of typography, the making of artists’ books, and the identification of the age and the provenances of books through the paper on which of they were printed. Highlights of the weekend were excursions to some famous libraries situation in Cologne: the Dom- und Diözesanbibliothek with its numerous treasures of medieval manuscripts, Ungers-Archiv für Architekturwissenschaften and the Petrarca and Proust collections of Professor Dr. Reiner Speck. Read the report (in German) by Meinhard Knigge.

  • Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - New York, New York!

    Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - New York, New York!

    Like the architect and sculptor Max Bill, Welti (1891–1934) belonged to the artistic new wave which characterised Zurich in the late 1920s, experimenting with abstract art and Dadaism.  In 1932, it was Welti who was asked by Wilhelm Wartmann, director of the Zurich Kunsthaus, which was mounting a major Picasso retrospective, to look after the Spaniard during his visit.  These early lithographs arose out of a visit Welti made to New York thanks to a ‘Swiss Economic Study Tour to America’, an initiative begun after the First World War.
