The Gaelic Book - The Printed Book in Scottish Gaelic

For many Gaels past and present, the 'Gaelic Book' would mean one thing - the Bible - and indeed in the sorry situation in which literacy in Gaelic has been rare, a Gaelic Bible would have been the only printed book in Scottish Gaelic in Gaelic-speaking households, whether in the Highlands and Islands or in the towns and cities such as Glasgow. But today publishing and broadcasting in Gaelic are enjoying the fruits of a new interest and enthusiasm, and there is a feeling in Scotland that the language is experiencing a renaissance or ath-bheòthachadh ...

Dernières nouvelles des vols à la Girolamini

Plus d'une année s'est écoulée depuis la découverte des vols et des faux en provenance de la Bibliothèque Girolamini. D'après les juges, le directeur de la bibliothèque Marino Massimo De Caro était le principal responsable des vols. Il a été arrêté et condamné à 7 ans de prison lors du premier des différents procès auxquels il va faire face. Ce procès concernait étalement ses complices. Le procès contre plusieurs libraires (dont 3 affiliés à la LILA) qui, selon le Parquet, l'ont aidé à vendre les livres volés, a été reporté jusqu'à une date indéterminée.

A Wonderland of Books, Indeed! Happy 184th Birthday, Mr. Dodgson!

One of my most favorite Children's writers of all time was born on the 27th of January, 1832. Scratch that – one of my most favorite writers, period, was born on the 27th of January, 1832. Many critics of great literature have commented on the fact that one of the most lasting kinds of literature is the kind that speaks to both children AND adults – writers whose works you can read when you are both 5 and 75 and learn something equally important at both of these starkly different ages. It is my super humble (though really awesome) opinion that the writer we honor today, on what would be his 184th birthday, is one of those writers. It is perhaps also appropriate that we honor his memory, as in less than a month there will be an ABAA Fair in Pasadena named after some of his most well-known work.

Reformation 500: Luther autograph on display - Bodleian Oxford 30 Oct - 3rd Nov 2017

A Commonplace Reformation: Oxford, Bodleian Library MS Add. A. 92 - Martin Luther's Autograph Collection of Proverbs. This manuscript is one of two in the Bodleian's possession which are written in Martin Luther's own hand, and, running to 40 pages, is by far the more substantial - though, about the size of a postcard, it remains small. It is a collection of proverbs (Sprichwörter), mostly in German, and dating from some point in the later 1530s or early 1540s. It was acquired by the Bodleian for £45 in 1865 - the "carelessness and poverty" of German libraries and museums for allowing this to happen was later lamented.
