Leonardo da Vinci: reflected in his library

Publié le 06 Mai 2019
Leonardo da Vinci was a tireless and inquisitive reader. He owned more than 200 books about science and technology as well as literary and religious topics. An exhibition organized by the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and the Berlin State Library at the Museo Galileo in Florence sheds new light on the intellectual cosmos of the artist, engineer, and philosopher, who remains as fascinating as ever 500 years after his death.

Popping Up In VERY Unexpected Places on UNESCO World Book & Copyright Day, 23 April 2016

I thought back to the discussions Barbara and I first had about how ILAB should celebrate UNESCO's World Book and Copyright Day.

ILAB Pop Up Book Market – Haarlem, Netherlands

On 23 April 2016, from 2 pm to 5 pm, the ILAB dealers of Bubb Kuyper Auctions and Antiquariaat A.G. van der Steur will hold an ILAB Pop Up Book Market at Kruisstraat 3 in Haarlem, just beside Kruispoort – the old city gate which was blown up by the Haarlem inhabitants in the year 1573 to protect themselves against the Spanish invasion. Inmidst this beautiful historical location, the Dutch booksellers will offer rare and fine books, maps and prints - some of which you might never have seen before. Jeffrey Bosch of Bubb Kuyper Auctions will be present from 4 to 5 pm to estimate your own bibliophile treasures. And as all the ILAB booksellers on that day across the world, the Dutch colleagues will sell "symbolic books" to fill "empty bookcases" for the school children in South Sudan.

A PARADISE FOR BOOKLOVERS - 53rd Stuttgart Antiquarian Book Fair from 24th to 26th January 2014

For Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the biggest values in life were neither the state finances nor his immense private property, but the books of his personal library. Heinrich Heine regarded the world of books as the most powerful universe mankind ever created. And for Jorge Luis Borges the library simply was his paradise. Some of the most beautiful items of this "capital", "universe" or "paradise" will be presented at the 53rd Stuttgart Antiquarian Book Fair from 24th to 26th January 2014 in the elegant rooms of the Württemberg Art Museum, opposite to the Palace, next to the Palace Garden and directly in the city centre of Stuttgart.
