The Grolier Club and the Herzog August Bibliotheck of Northern Germany share similar traditions and goals. Both institutions are committed to preserving the dignity of the rare book and the art of printing, and both contain valuable collections of manuscripts, incunables, and fine books. After the Grolier Club published Herzog August Bibliotheck: Ein kulturelles Gedächtnis mit Profil-Forschungs- und Studeitnstätte-Independent Research Library and Cultural Memory, an exhibition took place. This book is the catalogue of the exhibition at the Grolier Club that presented exquisite items reflecting the activities of book collector Duke August the Younger of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. This catalogue describes the importance and influences of the time and the area. It is richly illustrated with color and black-and-white images and was designed by Jörg Prengel. It was printed by Schäferart, Hanover, Germany. 270 pages. paperback. 8.5 x 11 inches.
