The Roger Casson Collection

A Private Library of Polar Exploration, Franklin Search, Travel, Local History and other Books. The library was put together over many years by the late Roger Casson, an architect from North East England, and is notable for the outstanding condition of much of the collection. The focus of the library is Polar Exploration in the 19th and early 20th century, which accounts for over 200 lots in the sale. Of particular note are a good collection of works recounting the ill-fated final expedition made by Sir John Franklin in 1845 to find the North-West Passage, and the numerous search missions that followed the disappearance of his ships and their crew.

BIBLIOTHECA ARABICA: THE PAST AND FUTURE OF ARABIC BIBLIOGRAPHY
The speaker for this talk is Boris Liebrenz, Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities, Leipzig.

In the 17th century, the need for a guide through the vast domains of Arabic literature, a Bibliotheca Arabica, was voiced repeatedly among Europe’s Republic of Oriental Letters. One who took up the task was Johann Heinrich Hottinger. Based in Zurich he was hopelessly removed from the necessary sources. Yet what he lacked in information, he made up with a methodology that was strikingly modern. Few dared to follow him down this path into one of the richest of the pre-modern literary traditions. Since great parts of it have remained in manuscript until today, taking stock of Arabic literary heritage and of its physical transmission through specific manuscript witnesses were often two sides of the same coin. Today, new technologies allow us to attempt a new Bibliotheca Arabica in ways that the printed page could not. This comes as scholars start to appreciate manuscripts not as necessary references but as social objects that have fascinating stories to tell. This presentation will show how to make these manuscripts, among them those in Columbia’s libraries, speak to us.

Following the talk a reception will be held in the Kempner Gallery, in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.

RSVP is required.
