Princeton University Library Chronicle


Hope you make a special effort to read your latest issue of the Princeton University Library Chronicle. The articles are (almost) all focused on the graphic arts collection and some new acquisitions. In particular, Robert Vilain, Professor of German & Head of the School of Modern Languages, presents a fresh appraisal of the Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) illustrated Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832).

Princeton’s own Carol Rigolot, Executive Director, the Council of the Humanities. Lecturer in French and Italian, has written a beautiful piece on the collaboration between Georges Braque (1882-1963) and Saint-John Perse (1887-1975), touching also on John James Audubon (1785-1851). François Wahl, editor at the Éditions du Seuil, and Rubén Gallo Professor of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures. Director, Program in Latin American Studies both write about the Cuban artist and writer Severo Sarduy (1937-1993). And much more.
