Dylan Thomas 100 FESTIVAL Wales Celebrates its Rock Star Poet During His Centenary Year
Dylan Thomas 100 – continues in Wales with news of additional multi-disciplinary events being added to the festival’s creative mix.

An inspiration for poet-musicians like Bob Dylan and John Lennon and actors like Richard Burton, Dylan Thomas was a bona-fide rock-star before there was such a thing – sometimes playing to crowds of 1,000 – especially in the USA. Welsh actor Matthew Rhys (The Americans; Brothers and Sisters) who has channeled the poet (in the film Edge of Love) hopes you'll join the festivities, “We've been celebrating Dylan Thomas in Wales for decades now. Come to Wales this year and celebrate his centenary.”

Here is a sampling of the inspired programs on tap during the second half of 2014:

June 28–Dec 20: Dylan – National Library of Wales
A combination of dance, poetry and the visual arts will provide a fresh take on Dylan’s life and work. The event will enliven several of the Library’s gallery spaces in Aberystwyth and will include displays of personal items, providing a unique view of Dylan’s world.

June 28: Dylanathon – 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, Swansea
Using a camera, smartphone or tablet, entrants are asked to use innovation over picture quality to interpret Dylan-related themes throughout the day.

July 19: Dylan Thomas’ Swansea Hollywood: The Mummy and the Old Dark Horse
This Dylan odyssey visits three of Dylan’s childhood cinemas in Swansea with a talk in a secret space at a fourth. The evening culminates with Andrew Davies introducing a screening of his new film, “A Poet in New York,” starring Tom Hollander, followed by a Q&A session.

Aug-Sept: Bedazzled - A Welshman in New York
Celebrating Dylan’s special relationship with the USA, especially New York, a series of live events will “re-imagine” Dylan’s favorite watering hole – New York’s White Horse Tavern. Audiences will be transported to the bohemian world of 1950’s Greenwich Village where Dylan held court.

Sept 5–Dec 24: Manuscripts Exhibition – Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea
Infrequently exhibited items on loan from the University of Buffalo include poems, lists of rhyming words and black and white photographs.

Oct 26-Oct 27: The Dylathon – The Swansea Grand Theatre
The Wales Theatre Company stages a non-stop 36 hour marathon reading of Dylan’s work. Performers include Sir Derek Jacobi, Jonathan Pryce, and many more acclaimed personalities together with schools, bands and choirs numbering in the hundreds.

Oct 27-Nov 9: Dylan Thomas Festival – Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea
This 17th annual eclectic celebration will feature talks, exhibitions, workshops and performances.

Dylan Thomas 100 and www.dylanthomas100.org highlights Welsh locations closely associated with the poet-like his birthplace, Swansea, his old writing shed, and his home -The Boathouse - in the town of Laugharne. And the program ranges across all artistic disciplines – from literature, to opera, theatre and painting. From high profile exhibits and live performances to community-based educational programs.

Business and Tourism Minister Edwina Hart said: “Dylan Thomas is one of the literary giants of the last century.” … “These events will help contribute to a fitting legacy for Dylan’s life and work, but I also hope they will resurrect a passion for literature and inspire people of all ages to connect more actively with our rich cultural heritage. In the spirit of Dylan, it is an opportunity to showcase Wales as a land of artistic excellence to an international audience and raise further the iconic status of this great literary figure.”

Incunabula, or, Books in the Cradle

Cassie Brand

The term “incunabula” refers to books printed before 1501, literally translating from Latin to mean “in the cradle.” With 29 books in the incunabula collection, Drew University Special Collections boasts great examples of early printed books. With beautiful handmade paper, intricate type fonts, and hand-colored illustrations, these printed volumes take us back to a time when hand-crafted books were prized possessions. Come touch and feel the hand-laid paper, knock on the thick wood boards of the binding, and marvel at the brilliant colors of gold illumination.

What They Wrote: Historical Manuscripts

Zannah Bingham Buck

Have you ever wondered what sort of letters Susan B. Anthony, Jefferson Davis, Albert Einstein, or Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote? Or wondered what Louisa May Alcott’s, George Eliot’s, or Elizabeth Gaskell’s handwriting looked like? Drew University’s collection of Historical Manuscripts is full of handwritten documents from over 900 different historical figures, all of which are available for use by researchers or by anyone who is simply curious. To get a taste of the richness of this collection, we will discuss what a manuscript is, how manuscripts end up in libraries and archives, and their modern-day value.

Day in the Life of Governor Kean

David Reagles

If you are a Drewid, you have undoubtedly noticed an uncommon prevalence of “Kean” on our beautiful campus. Whether you have studied in the Kean Reading Room, perused the Kean Gallery, or enjoyed a production in the Kean Theater, you have benefited from his legacy.

Thomas H. Kean served as governor of New Jersey, was appointed chairman of the 9/11 Commission, and led Drew University as its 10th president. We will explore a “day in the life of Kean” and examine the exciting collection of his papers that now enriches Drew University’s archives.

Tiny Treasures: Small Books in the Drew Library Special Collections

Brian Shetler

Small volumes are certainly interesting for their Lilliputian dimensions, but also for their purposes: as traveling companions for the literate and religious alike. These miniature volumes were portable, shareable, and easy to hide away if needed. This workshop will feature details about a few of these books and their history. It will provide an opportunity to interact with a selection of “tiny” books that are to be found in Rare Books, McClintock, Hymn Books, and other collections.

The 2014 Panizzi Lectures: The Giant Bibles of Twelfth-Century England
A series of three lectures by Christopher de Hamel

The great Latin Bibles, in huge multiple volumes, are by far the largest and most spectacular manuscripts commissioned in England in the 12th century, decorated with magnificent illuminated pictures. The lectures will consider the purpose of such books and why they were suddenly so fashionable and also why they passed out of fashion in England during the second half of the 12th century.

LECTURE 3: The Lambeth Bible
18.15-19.30

One volume of the vast Lambeth Bible has been in the library of Lambeth Palace since its foundation in 1610. The long-lost second volume is owned by All Saints’ Church in Maidstone and is on permanent deposit at the Maidstone Museum. Despite its fame and quality of illumination, nothing has been hitherto known about the Bible’s original owner or patron.

This lecture will propose that it was commissioned around 1148 for Faversham Abbey by King Stephen, king of England 1135-54, elder brother of Henry of Blois and protagonist with the Empress Matilda in the civil war of the 12th century. This involves analysis of the unusual iconography of the miniatures, rich in dynastic imagery, and an investigation of the earlier career of the principal artist in the production of manuscripts in a professional scriptorium at Avesnes Abbey in Flanders.

LECTURE 1: The Bury Bible

Several pleasing collections will also be featured. A fine selection of early Americana titles relating to the Upstate New York region, concentrating on Rochester, will be offered including city directories dating back to 1827 and titles such as "Art Work of Rochester Published in Nine Parts," printed in 1913. A collection of early medical writings includes titles such as an association copy of the 1823 printing of Cooper's "A Treatise on Dislocations and on Fractures of the Joints," and four 1889 first edition volumes of "Wood's Medical and Surgical Monographs." We are continuing our work with a large collection of author-signed modern and recent literature and this catalog includes group lots and individual titles such as the 1936 first edition of "A Further Range," signed by Robert Frost.

OUT OF PRINT, WITH DOCUMENTARIAN VIVIENNE ROUMANI
An Imprints and Impressions Series Event

What is the impact of digital technologies on books, the publishing industry, and print culture? How has the proliferation of online information changed the way we read, write, and think about issues of access, credibility, and the value of information? In Out of Print, director and former librarian at the Library of Congress Vivienne Roumani wrestles with these questions through interviews with scholars, writers, publishers, teachers, intellectual property advocates, and journalists. Join Roumani immediately following a screening of the film for a Q & A session about her film.

This event is in conjunction with the University Libraries' Imprints & Impressions book exhibit and the first-year Humanities Commons.

Landmarks in printing: from origins to the digital age
This year, the Printing Historical Society commemorates its fiftieth anniversary and its role in the encouragement of printing history. To celebrate this milestone, the Society is hosting several events, foremost of which is a two-day conference on the theme of Landmarks in Printing: from origins to the digital age at which an international line-up of speakers will present papers covering all aspects of the art and craft of printing, including itsaesthetic, cultural, practical and technical achievements.

As part of this two-day celebration, a number of other activities will run alongside the conference: an exhibition of the Society’s publications; demonstrations of historical printing methods; a book reading; a reception and book-launch; and a special evening lecture by Professor Michael Twyman.

For those with an interest in printing and typographic history, this is an essential event.

Auction of Fine Judaica

Features Selections From
The Collection of the
Late Dr. Alfred Moldovan

East Harlem physician and civil rights activist Alfred Moldovan founded the Medical Committee for Human Rights and was Martin Luther King Jr.’s personal physician. In addition to his medical career and political activities, Dr. Moldovan was a premier force in the field of Judaica as both a collector and scholar. Together with his wife Jean, he amassed a vast collection of important artifacts, which he generously made available to Jewish cultural institutions and other scholars for research and exhibit. In a specially prepared introduction to the auction catalogue, Dr. Moldovan’s son, Joseph Moldovan, relates that over time his parent’s collection which began in the late 1960s consisted of thousands of items. Seeing themselves as not only collectors but also as preservationists, the Moldovans relished the role each item they acquired played in the history and continuum of Jewish life. The Moldovan family sees it apt that the items so lovingly collected by their parents and now offered here for sale by Kestenbaum & Company will be acquired by a new generation of passionate Judaica collectors.

Among the numerous books to be offered in the sale, some of the many categories include American and Anglo Judaica, Early Printed Books, works relating to the German 18th century Haskalah (Jewish Enlightenment) Movement, Passover Hagadot, Holocaust associated texts and works relating to Zionism and the Land of Israel. Bidders will also be able to choose from an unusually large selection of 18th through 20th century Illustrated Books featuring the artistry of nearly every great Jewish illustrator of his time.

Ladies of a Certain Age
The History Wardrobe join us in Chawton Village Hall to celebrate the older women of Austen's fiction and the real lives of Georgian ladies.

Spinster, matron, mother, widow... Jane Austen's novels may have delightful young heroines, but they are also rich with rather older characters who now have the spotlight in this unique new costumed presentation celebrating old maids and matriarchs, from Miss Bates to Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

Lively readings from Austen's novels are interspersed with insights into the realities of life for women past their first blush of youth in Regency England; not forgetting praise for literature's most marvellous spinster - Jane Austen herself.

For those wishing to restore lost looks, there will also be invaluable beauty tips from the era as well as numerous medical recommendations for the aches and pains of middle age...

Adults £12.00
Concessions: £10.00

Comprising Works by Important Artists of the 19th and 20th Centuries
Consignments Are Currently Being Accepted
We Invite You to Contact Us for a Complimentary Auction Evaluation of Your Photographs

19th century images include an album containing approximately 200 albumen prints, primarily by Felix Bonfils, largely of Egyptian views, taken and printed circa 1870-1880. In a similar vein is a small group of images of Egypt and North Africa by Macdonald, Sebah etc. Dating to circa 1910 is a vintage Eugene Atget photograph of the Impasse Beauregard in Beauvais – the view of an ancient cobbled street, populated with one dapper local, charms the eye. An unusual offering is a collection of fourteen vernacular 19th century images of mining in the American West.

From a private collection is an interesting group of photographs and portfolios, almost all of which were purchased in the 1970s and early 1980s from the late Lee Witkin, the pioneering photography dealer. Included in this group is the portfolio Ten Photographs of Brassaï, a fine example from the edition of fifty, with ten original gelatin silver prints. From the same collection is a portfolio of photographs by the inimitable Jacques Henry Lartigue, published in 1972 by Witkin-Berley, with ten original photographs, each signed on the mount by Lartigue. Individual images from this collection and provenance include classic works by Helen Levitt (Masked Children), Yousuf Karsh’s fine portrait of Georgia O’Keeffe, Judy Dater’s classic image of Twinka and Imogen Cunningham, a fine Doris Ulmann portrait, a Man Ray portrait of Arthur Freed, Manuel Alvarez Bravo’s superb Parábola Óptica and many others works of equivalent quality. From another source are five fine Milton Greene photographs of Marilyn Monroe from the famous Black Sitting that complement this group. Other classic photography includes an unusual group of Chinese interest by Hedda Hammer Morrison, a superb group of twelve mounted and signed vintage gelatin silver prints of the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and other scenes.

Modern works include Robert Mapplethorpe’s Parrot Tulip in Black Vase, 1985, one of ten examples of this classic floral image by the photographer. An unusual offering comprises five polaroids by Andy Warhol, one of which is signed, taken during a shoot for Vogue. Certain to attract attention are two of Ray Metzker’s important composites, including City Drillers III, one of only six completed from the edition of twenty. One of Yasmina Alaoui and Marco Guerra’s remarkable collaborative photographs, the sensuous Trio I, rounds out this group.
