Les Enluminures Announces 2 Events During Bibliography Week in New York City

(Les Enluminures)

“Bibliography Week” happens every year in New York City at the end of January when principal national organizations devoted to book history have their annual meetings. Many interesting events are planned, since so many bibliophiles are in town. Some events are open only to members of the Grolier Club, but others are public and anyone with an interest in books is invited to show up. Les Enluminures is proud to be participating this year in “Bibliography Week,” especially so because two of its principles Sandra Hindman, Founder and President, and Laura Light, Senior Specialist, have joined the Club in the last year.

Following on the great success of previous years’ events, a special mini-antiquarian book fair, sponsored by the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America will be held this year. It will take place in the “Skyroom” of the French Institute/ Alliance Francaise, located right across the street from the Grolier Club. Representing Les Enluminures, Laura Light will be present with a selection of medieval manuscripts.

Thursday, January 25, 10am-4pm 22 East 60th Street, New York contact the ABAA Executive Director Susan Benne at sbenne@abaa.org, 212-944-8291
Exhibition: “Manuscripts of the Middle Ages” Open to all interested parties, Les Enluminures will host a special exhibition in its gallery in New York.

Included will be representative examples of all types of manuscripts from the Middle Ages: Books of Hours, Portable Bibles, Romances and Histories, Church Books for the Liturgy, and Documents. This is a good opportunity to learn just how diverse medieval manuscripts were during the medieval era and to experience their aesthetic beauty and historical interest.
