This message has been sent to ExLibris and several other bulletin boards; I
apologize to those for whom it is a duplicate.

The 1992 Rosenbach Lectures in Bibliography will be presented at the Van
Pelt-Dietrich Library Center of the University of Pennsylvania on March 17,
19, and 24. Wolfgang Milde, manuscripts librarian at the Herzog August
Bibliothek in Wolfenbuttel, Germany, will speak on "The Gospel of Henry the
Lion." This remarkable illuminated manuscript, auctioned in 1983, was re-
trieved as a national treasure for Germany at that time and is now housed at
the Herzog August Bibliothek. The Rosenbach Lectures are open to the public
without charge. Readers, art historians, medievalists, Germanists--any and all
are welcome to attend who can make it to Penn. Receptions start at 5 P.M. each
evening, the lectures themselves at 5:30. Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center is
located at 3420 Walnut Street in Philadelphia; its entrance is on Locust Walk
(south of Walnut Street) and marked by an unmistakable Claes Oldenburg statue
of a broken button. (Nearby parking is available.) Presentation of a photo
id as you enter the building, while not required, will please the Library's
doorguards. Elevators in the entrance lobby take you to the 6th floor; turn
left on 6. Receptions are held in the Henry Charles Lea Library; lectures are
presented in the Lessing J. Rosenwald Gallery.
