Otto Ege Bible Leaves Exhibition

Enjoy the latest library exhibition featuring 17 authentic bible leaves from the 12th through the 20th centuries. The leaves were accumulated and described by the late Otto F. Ege (pronounced EGG-EE), Dean of the Cleveland Institute of Art and Lecturer on History of the Book at the School of Library Science, Western Reserve University (now Case Western). As early as 1923, Mr. Ege began to draw upon his personal collection of incomplete manuscripts and printed books to create six unique sets of book leaves for sale to private collectors throughout Europe and North America.

The exhibition will run through December 31, 2006. Enjoy, and please post your comments!
