Curatorial Tour of "Gutenberg and After"

Curatorial Tour of "Gutenberg & After" at Firestone Library.  

Wednesday November 13, 2019; 6 to 8 pm at the Milberg Gallery; Firestone Library.  

Wine and Cheese will be served.  Free to PA3 dues-paying members and one guest per member

** PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED VIA EMAIL TO SEV. ADMISSION IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 20 REGISTRANTS. **

Bibliophile and philanthropist William H. Scheide '36 bequeathed to Princeton his rare book library, including one of the world's greatest collections of early European printing. Today, a new exhibition opens in the Ellen and Leonard Milberg Gallery, “Gutenberg & After: Europe’s First Printers 1450-1470,” showcasing the Scheide collection alongside treasures borrowed from nine leading institutions in the United Kingdom and North America.

The exhibition tells the story of the two decades that transformed text production and distribution across Europe. It is the first exhibition to focus on the inaugural years of the spread of printing.

The cornerstones of the exhibition are the Gutenberg Bible of 1455 and the 1457 Mainz Psalter, both from the Scheide Library. These two earliest datable printed books are contextualized by a careful selection of other early European printing that documents both Mainz printing even earlier than the Gutenberg Bible, and the spread of printing to other towns, including Strasbourg, Bamberg, Rome, Venice, and Paris.

Princeton Diversity Discussion

Please join us at our inaugural Princeton Diversity Discussion in Princeton, New Jersey, on Wednesday, October 2, at 6 pm, in the meeting room of Shanghai Park Restaurant in the Princeton Shopping Center, 301 North Harrison Street #33, Princeton, 08540.

Attendees pay for their own meals; people are welcome to come and just join for the conversation without eating. Please bring cash if you can since the restaurant has a limit on credit cards per gathering. RSVPs are not required, but may be sent to Jenny Korn.

To join our Princeton Diversity Discussions email list, please email Princeton Diversity Discussions Founding Director Jenny Korn.

The hosts for this gathering will be Anu Vedantham and Jasmine Ueng-McHale.

Princeton Diversity Discussions is our series of friendly and inclusive gatherings supported by the Association of Black Princeton Alumni (ABPA), Association of Latino Princeton Alumni (ALPA), Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (A4P), Princeton Association of New England (PANE), Princeton Club of San Diego (PCSD), Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3), and Princeton Club of Chicago (PCC). We have been featured in PAW.

Open to *everyone* (affiliated and not with Princeton) who would like to discuss race-related issues in person. We invite alumni, students, staff, family, friends, and everyone you think is groovy to join us! So far, we have teamed up with the Duke Black Alumni Association, Harvard Women in Design, and the Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Network to co-host discussions. Hosting involves no financial commitment, only a commitment to selecting a date in the calendar and to choosing a restaurant that the host digs. You can find us easily at our gatherings because we wear Princeton, orange, and black apparel.
