  1. Wish I could join you, but I live in Florence, Italy. Oh well, I really hope to get to your library and see the exhibition. I’m a retired director of Special Collections at the University of Nevada, Reno library in the U.S. I’m very interested in the history of printing and am giving a series of talks here in Florence on the history of Italian printing (very basic). My talk earlier this week included Aldus, so I’m anxious to see your exhibition and at the same time do some research in your fantastic collection. Cheers — Bob
