Watanabe's Library Comes to Gettysburg

Dr. Kiyomi Koizumi Watanabe has donated the Cusanus volumes in Professor Morimichi Watanabe’s library to Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary. The holdings, which include a complete Opera omnia, will be added to the H. Lawrence Bond Collection obtained last year to form one of the most complete Cusanus libraries in North America. Gerald Christianson and Eric Crump served as collectors and transporters, and Dr. Koizumi generously contributed to the transportation costs. The Watanabe Collection will soon be available through OCLC’s WorldCat and will be dedicated at the next Gettysburg Conference on October 10-12, 2014.
