The Warburg Institute Library, London, is once again in danger, 80 years after being saved from the Nazis

The Warburg Institute Library holds about 350,000 books. It was originally founded in Hamburg by Aby Warburg (1866-1929), one of the most brilliant intellectuals of the 20th century. Warburg's enormous collection – which documents the history of the Renaissance and the influence of antiquity on modern culture in an interdisciplinary approach - was transformed into a scholarly institution called Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg. The library was located in Hamburg (Germany) until the year 1933. Four years after Aby Warburg's death his collection had to be brought out of the country because it was in danger of being destroyed by the Nazis. The Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg was relocated in London, 1944 it became associated with the University of London, and in 1994 it became a founding institute of the University of London's School of Advanced Study.

Bob de Graaf 1927 - 2011

L'Association Néerlandaise de la librairie ancienne (NVvA) et la LILA ont la douleur de vous faire part du décès de Bob de Graaf (1927-2011). Bob de Graaf servit la NVvA en tant que Secrétaire (1963-1969) puis en tant que Président (1971-1974). En 1973 il fut élu au Comité de la Ligue et accepta d'en être à la fois le rédacteur de la Lettre d'Information et le Secrétaire. Il fut élu en 1979 à la présidence de la LILA pour un mandat de trois ans, et en 1985 il fut promu à la présidence d'honneur de la Ligue, promotion largement méritée.

Books about Books: A History of Oak Knoll Press, Part 11: An International Presence

Back in the US, we published the first in a series of titles written by the New York antiquarian booksellers Leona Rostenberg and Madeleine Stern (Bib. #65) in which they reminiscence about their lengthy experience buying and selling rare books. They wrote with charm and painted vivid portraits of many of the famous collectors and dealers of their day. I had known them for a long time and had even reprinted a series of their catalogues as one of our first publications (Bib. #4). They had proposed me for membership in the ABAA in 1978. Over the years we published five of their titles including New Worlds in Old Books. This excellent book was distributed as a gift by Brigham Young University to all members of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) in tribute to these two fine booksellers. Near the end of their long and productive lives, they submitted a manuscript to us that I felt needed additional work. I called them and talked over my thoughts as gently as I could but my suggested changes were not well received. Much to my regret, they did not talk to me again before they died.
