Rare Books in the Press - La lunga storia della Bibliotheca Hertziana

The Bibliotheca Hertziana is located in Rome. It emerged from a donation of Henriette Hertz (1764-1847) and was founded as a Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now: Max Planck Institute) in 1913. With around 289.000 volumes, the Bibliotheca Hertziana is regarded as one of the world's famous research centres for the history of art and architecture of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque.

The Census documents antique monuments known in the Renaissance together with related Renaissance texts and images, and information about locations, persons and periods as well as bibliographical data.

And in January this year I summoned my son John to rejig my website, so that it would no longer be possible to browse or order any of my stock online. And he did. Which means that I am no longer an internet bookseller. It's over, finished, done with. And I am delighted. I can't help wishing that I'd taken the plunge years ago. But to everything there is a season – and a reason.
