On Saint George s Day, sponsor a book

On the occasion of Saint George’s Day, the UB Sponsors program launches its micro-patronage campaign Sponsor a Book, aiming to raise funds to restore three unique editions from the Rare Book and Manuscript CRAI Library of the UB. The current challenge is to gather 5,950 euros to pay for the restoration tasks for these three unique pieces, selected by CRAI: Dictionnaire¿de¿chifres¿et de¿lettres¿ornées, by Jean-Henri-Prosper Pouget (Paris:¿Tilliard, 1767); De¿arte¿gymnastica¿libri¿sex, by Girolamo Mercuriale (Venice:¿Lucantonio¿Giunta, 1587), and Homer’s Odyssey, (Geneva: Jean Crespin, 1567). The campaign wants to continue and the university plans on choosing three documents from the University’s bibliographic and documentary heritage every year, coinciding with Saint George’s Day, to be restored. Donations can be made through this website .
