A letter from ILAB President Norbert Donhofer:

Dear Fellow-Presidents,

Shortly after my visit at Naples where I had met with Italian authorities, I received a letter from Dott.ssa Rossana Rummo from the 'Ministero dei beni e delle attivitá culturale e del turismo'. The title of this letter was:

"Risposta a nota di protesta dell'International League of Antiquarian Booksellers".

Our Italian colleagues have translated not only her letter to me but also Fabrizio Govi's and my answer to her, as well as Dott.ssa Rummo's response to our letter.

We are forwarding all the three letters to you. Feel free to forward those to your members and/or publish them on your website.

Kind regards,

Norbert Donhofer, President of ILAB
